As FireFox OS is also built on Linux, perhaps it could share a forum with Tizen?

If they throw us some sponsorship money of course.

It's openly developed unlike Tizen.

Any info about native development for this OS (Qt, SDL, Python, etc.) ? I guess if they want some playable (3D) games, they would have to enable that one way or another.

Who cares about the hardware? It's all about software.

Quick reply...
It seems that applications on Firefox OS are HTML5 apps. And about 3D games... http://html5games.com/tag/3d/ Don't know whether they are playable, though.

"You can't write anything in c" were the exact words this Saturday on FirefoxOSAppDays. On the other hand I like that they push HTML5 as an app framework. It'll only make it better if they succeed.

BTW

Yeah, Firefox OS goes for pure virtual environment (i.e. with JavaScript VM). No native code.

Well, it is expected they will be eating their own dogfood. But the question is if you are forced to only write applications in HTML5 (didn't work very well on WebOS), or if you can also run & distribute proper native applications that can be ported from other platforms & use the many existing multiplatform libraries (Qt, imagemagic, SDL, etc.).

Of course there is native code - I'm 100% sure there is no CPU that executes Javascript & HTML5 on the metal.
All the stuff that renders HTML5, runs the Javascript interpreter, exports APIs, the telephony framework and the whole sandbox management is definitely not written in either Javascript or HTML5.
