OS,I have Windows 7 on my desktop pc and am really starting to get
tired of Windows related OS's.

Hi Frank,

Yes I hope so, eventually. There are a few unofficial projects which have created a LiveCD which runs the UI prototype and can be used to demo the concept, but an official fully installable OS is some way off right now.

If you have any ideas for what a Webian OS should be like, feel free to suggest them http://getsatisfaction.com/webian

Thanks for your interest

You can put a Linux distribution on a USB flash drive and boot that,
and if you like it you can install it. http://www.browserlinux.com/
is a small lightweight one, maybe it would be a good base for a Webian
LiveCD; Google "lightweight linux distribution Firefox" for many

I think BrowserLinux ships Firefox 4.0.1 right now. The instructions
for BrowserLinux are very bare-bones, I wouldn't recommend it unless
you've made a bootable USB flash drive before.
