A New Sea of Open-Source

Finish-based tech company Jolla is introducing its new Mobile Operating System it calls Sailfish. Jolla has also developed its own smart phone that will operate on the new operating system. The smart phone is due for release in 2013. SailFish is based on the Linux operating system and will function on any smart phone hardware. Sailfish OS is the product of the Open Source Sailfish Alliance which was formed in 2011 to weave together OEM’s, ODM manufacturers, chip set providers, app developers and retailers to develop and support the open source system.
