Mozilla & Gecko clones "Over the past year and a half I've been spending more and more of my time working with Mozilla's latest project, Firefox OS. During that time I've fallen in love with the project and what it stands for, in ways that I've never experienced with a technology platform before." I'm not convinced just yet. I hope it succeeds, but I just doubt it actually will.

It makes perfect sense. I'm not in the business of caring about what lazy developers prefer. Anyone using HTML/JS to write run anywhere app is pretty much the worst kind of developer I know.

Wake up, developers. At one point, people were more principled than this.


I'm very principled... One of my first principles is that I don't believe that development is the process of becoming attached at the hip to a particular vendor's idea of the right way to do things. HTML/JS might not be perfect, but it has one very significant feature that no other development platform has - no one company is steering the boat.

And since you want to resort to name calling... What is being content to slop up Microsoft or Apple's latest dog food for the sake of it making things easier for you? That sounds pretty lazy to me.

My development platform is the world - yours is just the latest gadget fad...
