This is a very interesting development as a possible base platform for a
future fully html based Sugar. B2G always felt like the perfect platform
for it, if not because it wouldn't (fully) work on a normal Linux distro.

Hello everyone,

I would like to initiate a new open-source community project to port
FireFox OS to the Intel/AMD x86-64 platform.

I'm thinking along the lines of the port for RasPi that Oleg Romashin
developed - executing Gecko on top of a vanilla Linux kernel with only the
essential drivers/libraries loaded.

Supposedly this method would let us run FF-OS on an x86 PC like other Linux
distros; e.g. Ubuntu, Fedora; just that its UI would be Gecko instead of
KDE or Gnome.

This way we should also be able to reduce our dependence on Android as the
backbone of FireFox OS.

Perhaps further down the line we could also take advantage of UEFI booting
and B2G in < 10 seconds?

Would anyone be interested in contributing to this effort?

Looking forward to an exciting time ahead!
