Hey William,

Firefox OS is an interesting option, yes. See also https://github.com/owncloud/pi-image/issues/10

In the end, the choice will have to be practical: the base should be something people can work on easily, so it has to be familiar. Multiple people should be able to help manage and improve it. I'm not sure if Firefox OS even tries to be a platform for something like ownCloud, to be honest. But you can prove us wrong ;-)

I'll contact you directly about getting you a device so you can help build an image and prove that Firefox OS can be a great platform for ownCloud :D

Everything I do and say is based on my view of the world today. I am not responsible for changes in the world, nor my view on it. Everything I say is meant in a positive and friendly way, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
