New ByzantineOS desktop environment (screenshots only)

http://sourceforge.net/project/screenshots.php?group_id=59958

The new desktop environment for ByzantineOS is a 'application container' for single-application devices powered by embedded linux.

The desktop environment is itself a xulrunner (http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/XULRunner) application.

The desktop applications are XPI extensions.
