At last a system that shows how powerfull Mozilla as a platform can be.

Some few points:

- Not focus to be a custom Linux distribution, the platform should be distribution agnostic. - Focus to Windows users with a Windows port, or a port to cygwin. People like have all integrated and related (is a MS Windows key success).

OEone could make money with subscription to remote services but allowing use the same but local.
