Default mozilla based OS?

I was browsing the mozilla site and someone posted that they're making a mozilla based version of linux. Thought it was kinda neat, you can read about it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symphony_OS the interface looks pretty neat too, might have to give it a try if it comes out.

also tell how the interface and stuff is. Looks pretty user friendly and overall just a unique interface. I might install that one as well just for the heck of it.

Im trying to install it, but tim getting an error..

"Intel.c:515 azx_get_response timeout"

Might be because it's a laptop..


EDIT, After a few minutes the error went. Im on the OS now.

UPDATE, currently installing to hard drive, as OS was running off disc. Need to find drivers for the WiFi card, it's a laptop you see..
