Mozilla & Gecko clones "It's no secret that Mozilla has been working on a mobile OS. Previously codenamed Boot2Gecko, the project focused on a purely HTML5 based system that worked in many ways like current mobile devices. As the project grew into Mozilla OS, the company has laid out a partnership with ZTE that will have real world devices in certain markets early next year. Testing for this OS had previously consisted of a compiled ROM that would be flashed over a handful of Android devices. Now, Mozilla has moved into full fledged product evaluation mode with their own custom developer phone." Looks decent - and a better solution for testers and developers than custom ROMs.

WP7 has over 100k apps. In who's reality is that a failure ?

Also WP8 will still primarily use C# with C++ being used by games and for WinRT components.

In Windows 8 where devs can use C++, 80% of Store apps are C# and XAML based.

As someone who participated in XBLIG, the problems was not the choice of C#, but rather boneheaded decisions by Microsoft with regards to cost, agility, and awareness. It was just a very badly run program.
