PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "As April draws to a close we are pleased to share more code for Open webOS. This month's scheduled release includes support for Node.js as well as updates to Enyo and Ares. In addition, we are pleased to announce early delivery of the System Manager Bus (which was originally scheduled for July) and a release of three policy components based on our Platform Portability Layer. We're happy to be ahead of schedule in getting this component of the Open webOS platform into your hands." Can't wait for the day I can run an up-to-date WebOS version on my SII.

Boot2gecko sound sort of like a mee-too project inspired by the chromium OS. Ever since the demise of Mozilla Prism, I haven't taken much of their side projects too seriously.

I have the complete opposite feeling. Mozilla seems to be very serious about boot2gecko and is investing heavily in it. They also seem to be the only ones that make webapps a number one priority.
Tizen, webos, ms phone, chrome(os) all seem like dead ends to me. Look at what google is doing with 'webapps' only making them work in chrome and using plugins like nacl. Look at what ms is doing with 'webapps' where they only run on IE.
Watch out for Mozilla's marketplace where they will give you an apps experience with webapps that should be able to work on any browser/device.

The only cool things are the hardware interaction api's which everyone of those projects has written differently, and will not work on anyone else's os unless they write support for it.

The only apps that will work on anyone else's device are those webpages that are already in existence now. Why do you need a marketplace for them? Isn't that just a limited version of Google? Just a terrible waste of Mozilla's scarce resources, IMHO.
