Xcerion, please abort your mission

So back in early may 2007 (yes 2007) I signed up for the Xcerion Beta program, I`m always interested in the next new Internet OS etc so I tought it was a good idea to give it a try.

In December of that same year I got a message stating that I made it to their Beta cloud. Their mail stated

This is your invitation to participate in Xcerion's XIOS/3 Beta program. You are one of the first in the world to get access to XIOS/3.
We currently only support IE6+ browsers. We are working on adding Firefox support (high priority).

Obviously didn't sign up ..
In April when I got the invite mail for the 4th time .. I replied to the Xcerion folks ..

As I am a Linux user .. I need firefox , since your initial mail
december 21st last year you say that Firefoxx support is high
priority ...

Their reply:

We have made some great progress on the Firefox version. This is the most
complex and fully featured cloud OS available, which makes porting more time
consuming. We are also constantly adding a lot of features. Xcerion is also
considering doing a native Linux version :)

Today I got yet another mail from them guess what still isn't supported ?

We currently support IE6+ browsers. Rest assured that we are working on adding Firefox support (high priority). The Firefox support will also enable usage of icloud on Mac and Linux

It's time to give up guys .. you lost the battle.

#1 Xcerion : Xcerion on Linux - worth waiting for


I hope that it is ok that we give you a short reply? Xcerion is creating value for a lot of people already today. Eventually also for Linux users.

As we work towards a very large vision, we do not see the time urgency in weeks or months. We believe that we in the long term will provide incredible value for the Linux community. This is very important for us.

Large efforts like icloud (developed since 2001) requires a lot of time and patience. With our very large project we will move the development front lines forward and make new things possible on the web. Keep in mind that it has taken Linux many years to come to market.

You are welcome back to try the service when we are up and running on Firefox. Please be patient.
