Mozilla & Gecko clones

Whether or not the Open fits your needs, one thing is clear: Mozilla needs more capable hardware to demonstrate Firefox OS' potential. The Open is good for someone whose alternative would be a basic flip phone, but the camera quality, connectivity, display and performance don't do full justice to the software.

A promising start, but clearly better hardware is needed. I'm really hoping Firefox OS gets a fair shot.

While it's good that there's a truly open choice, the fact remains that it's an OS built around HTML. Me no comprendo. I thought webos taught us that this was a bad idea. Even they had to relent, and all the major apps used native code. It's just a stupid idea, i'm sorry. An ugly hack. Keep HTML and JS to the browser, please.
