Submission + - OS upgrades powered by Git (webconverger.org)

JamieKitson writes: The latest Webconverger 15 release is the first Linux distribution to be automagically updatable from a Github repository. The chroot of the OS is kept natively in git's format and fuse mounted with git-fs. Webconverger fulfills the Web kiosk use case, using Firefox and competes indirectly with Google Chrome OS. Chrome OS also has an autoupdate feature, however not as powerful, unified & transparent as when simply using git. bod

Comment How about writing a Web game? (Score 1) 43

Write a Web game application and ensure it works smoothly in the Android browser. i.e. Tweaking the CSS for bigger buttons etc. etc.

BONUS: Should work on the Iphone too and any Web browser ... yowsers!

I think the most compelling games platform is the Web. Someone needs to write a cool simple game like BRE or Planetarium. =)
