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.

So yes, Javascript never was the best choice, but when did you ever see the best technology win ? Take VHS Betamax as an example. The "problem" is, Javascript is widespread and "good enough".

Betamax wasn't really all-around better; recording time was lacking.
