Xenon Project looking for devs


We, the Xenon Project, a Web OS project with a revolutionary new GUI, are looking for devs, artists, idea people, etc.

We'd like someone who can (all of these are entirely optional):

Program in PHP/MySQL/XHTML/JavaScript, or Flash/Java (music players, etc)
Program for X (any toolkit, just so long as you can program wireless and power management)

Make art for the project

Give us ideas for the project! We need as many ideas as we can get, so we'd love any contribution in that department, no matter how small!

More info and a "pre-alpha" test of the GUI will appear on http://32.97.40.65/

Thanks

What exactly is the definition of a "Web OS"?
What exactly is revolutionary about your "revolutionary new GUI"?
What were the key three reasons for starting this project?
Just curious....

Good questions.
The definition of a Web OS:
Adding programs to your web browser to enable it to perform all the functions you would expect a PC to do (eg Instant messenger, photos, music, wordprocessing)
My GUI is revolutionary because it does away with regular "drop-down" menus and windows that you see a lot of computers using. It is designed for ease of use from the ground up, and will always aspire to be so.
The key reasons for starting were:

To make it easier for the new user to use a computer
To provide all applications anyone would need straight from a web browser without installation hassles
To make sure the operating system would run fast on extremely low-end systems (the base is Linux-based, and will boot straight into the Web OS, while only requiring a 386 with a very small amount of memory (it has been tested with 20MB successfully, before X and the browser was added)

Hope that clears it up for you!

The demo page you've linked to suggests contacting you via email, yet there's no contact info (at least none that I'm able to discern...)

cheers,

Email contact link added.

EDIT: DNS has been added. The website is now available under the more memorable:
http://xenon.homelinux.com
Cheers!
