Preetam D’Souza, the creator of MaruOS and its current only developer, wrote a new blog post about open-sourcing the project. He commented:
I think that together we’ll be able to make Maru better than ever. We can get Maru on more devices, have more thorough testing, and benefit from all the great ideas within the community. What started out as a personal quest quickly became a shared vision by everyone who felt a spark of excitement at Maru’s promise. And that promise extends far beyond the developer community. Imagine if we can give people who don’t have access to a PC a similar experience on their low-cost smartphones. I think Maru can have a serious impact here, and I am very keen on hearing from anyone who can help with this.
I can’t wait to see where Maru goes from here–all I know is that when you get a group of passionate people together, amazing things happen.
Thank you for your enthusiasm!
It will certainly be interesting to monitor this project.
