Raspberry Fox: Mozilla’s Firefox OS Running on a Raspberry Pi

What happens when the tinkerer-friendly, $25 Raspberry Pi computer meets the equally friendly, but still-in-progress Firefox OS? Open source maker/hacker bliss.

Oleg Romashin, an engineer at Nokia, managed to get Firefox OS up and running on a Raspberry Pi, which debuted earlier this year.

The video above shows the Firefox OS Gecko runtime cranking away on the Raspberry Pi. The Raspberry Pi’s ARM11 processor even manages to handle some WebGL animations at 60 frames per second — not bad for a computer that’s only $25, and equally impressive for an OS that’s still in the early, experimental stages.
