You must clik on the titles to see the entire posts. I'm still not sure it's Linux-based.

OK, let's talk about the concepts you've been working on, care to put them on the table?

Ok. First, it's not an OS anymore :) Reading https://developer.mo..._desktop_client I realized that these concepts I'm working on don't belong to an operating system. So now it's just an environment, named "Ome".
Here is the new address :
http://sett.com/ome

It's like a cross-platform desktop environment, with its own apps inside.

It's built on top of Gecko (where Gaia fits). Main concepts are :

- opk files
- rooms
- automation
- invitation

Opk files are inspired from android's apk files. There's a market, it's easy to download. For applications, we use asm.js as portable low level language. No matter if you're on Windows, Linux, whatever : if you can use Firefox, then you can use Ome and all of its apps.

Rooms are "apps-merging" environments. For instance, I often use Gimp+Blender+AVI2GIF. So I can make a Room, which is like my own little studio. Basic functions (like open-project, open-recent, save, save-as, undo, redo, ...etc) belong to the Room, not to the Apps.

The "automation" feature provides Sikuli-like capabilities inside Ome.

And last one : your Ome is part of a P2P social network. You can connect to your friends or family, and more important : you can invite them in one of your Rooms. Then you all share the same screen (I mean they can see your screen on their computer), everyone has a mouse cursor (with a little avatar under it), and... you get the idea?

Oh yes! The idea is nice, it's like merging google docs with meet-u, or however it's called the one you can share your desktop with others.

I like the p2p thing, it sounds nice for sharing and transfering files but keeping the privacy, since it's not a site, but a client program running on the desktop owners' privacy set up.

By the way, you should focus on privacy.

Well, if you go to the social angle, I would say you will need at least two features: follow room, and room news notification.

So if you follow some room's content, whenever it gets anything new you get notified and you could go check what is it.
