judgecorp writes "Mozilla's mobile phone operating system only exists in an early beta form, but Oleg Romashin, a researcher at Nokia, has already got it working on the Raspberry Pi and posted video to prove it. We don't think this indicates any alternate strategy for Nokia if Windows Phone doesn't pan out, but it does show that Firefox OS is portable, and the Pi is capable, and both can be played with — which will please both Mozilla and the Raspberry Pi Foundation. And the Firefox OS work in progress is available for download (direct tarball link)."

    So it's immediately less valuable as a community project and provides less benefits to those who own it, because you personally can't get your hands on one, because you missed the order window for the first batch of 10,000 and are too cheap to buy one of the thousands being listed on eBay?

    Sorry, I must have missed the Slashdot community vote where you were appointed the center of attention for the entire fucking universe.
