    Phoronix: The OS That Switched From Linux To BSD Is Now Making Its Own GUI

    JabirOS, the distribution formerly powered by Ubuntu that changed to a FreeBSD base and then proclaimed itself an independent FreeBSD fork, is trying to invent its own user-interface...

    It's not that surprising that they'd go with HTML5 and BSD, since BSD is well known for its server performance.

      Maybe they have reverse-engineered the PlayStation 3 or 4 operating system (that if I remember well it's based on a BSD variant) and made a port.
      Or else I want the phone number of their pushers.

        What does serving web pages with Apache/nginx have in common with rendering them with Gecko?

          Do they care to explain what is it about games that sees an advantage in JabirOS over others? Is it better performance, more games, or what exactly? Last time I checked my Fedora installation was capable of running games.. lots of them!

          The new UI is original, but not necessarily better than the competition. I like how their store is well integrated into the OS, but overall the UI is very touch oriented. It also wastes a lot of screen estate. And worst of all, it's HTML driven.

            Well, obviously is not the same OS. It may have the same name but it's not the same OS.

              Indeed, I love FreeBSD, but it's a different world; you can't expect to get your games from the nice Ubuntu software center

                Ubuntu Games

                Maybe one day this will be good. I am no fan of Ubuntu but have these guys not heard of Steam?

                  It gets massively accelerated by noscript

                    BSD is the best choice for servers, but it's a "desktop environment", and not related to server.

                    Maybe they have reverse-engineered the PlayStation 3 or 4 operating system (that if I remember well it's based on a BSD variant) and made a port.

                    No, In fact, we claimed this advantage because Web-based games are more than native linux games, and that's only a joke .

                    The new UI is original, but not necessarily better than the competition. I like how their store is well integrated into the OS, but overall the UI is very touch oriented. It also wastes a lot of screen estate. And worst of all, it's HTML driven.
                    This is a good critism, but Cadmium is so young, we have touch screen ideas, but current cadmium is fully controlable by mouse and keyboard, and we're working on it, to use all of the screen estate as well.
                    Why do you dislike HTML?
