Mozilla & Gecko clones "Firefox OS could actually be wildly successful, no matter how underwhelming the actual phones may be. And that's because - at least for now - you're not the customer; your carrier is." I'm extremely disappointed by Firefox OS so far. There's nothing wrong with the low-end hardware we've seen during MWC, but there is something wrong with low-end hardware that can't even properly run its operating system. To make matters worse, carriers are the boss here. Terrible first impression.

And the C# JIT has over a decade of work going into it, and Microsoft's extensive language and compiler experience from even longer than that.

JS doesn't do even a fraction of the optimization even a clumsy C# JIT does. Start doing install-time native compilation of C# and the story gets even better.
