Oh, this is good. Mozilla

Oh, this is good. Mozilla embedded into Nautilus. If nothing else, I think mozilla will make a huge difference to the alternative-OS world. The first question most people ask is: "Does it have a decent browser?" If it does and it works well, people will be a lot more likely to use an alt-os. The second question most people ask is, "Does it have game X?" The unfortunate answer to that for most games is no, although this initiative for a kind of cross-platform directx-killer looks interesting, although the cynical will note that most anti-MS measures have been doomed to failure in the past. If things have really changed, maybe this won't be the case for Khronos.
