... when there is iOS, Android, Phone 7, webOS, Blackberry QNX + plus all the legacy mobile OS's.

Hum, let me think - - with so much choice in the market are any manufacturers really go to put this on a phone? Not really a good time to launch a new mobile OS is it?

...and none are open source.

I get your point about entering a crowded market but everyone benefits from competition and choice. If this could prove to be a drop in replacement for android (with android app compatibility) then I think there would be a market for it. It would be mostly a geek thing but a market none the less.
