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.

Since it relies on Android compatible hardware and Android underlying lower stack with kernel/drivers - its potential installation base is quite broad. So it won't be a corpse by any means.

So far what's really lacking are devices compatible with conventional (non Android) Linux stack. Samsung's devices for Tizen didn't come out yet to address this, and Jolla's one is supposed to appear next year.

Tizen is much broader than Samsung: http://www.tizenassociation.org/en/

May be, but it doesn't seem that anyone besides Samsung is going to release any devices. I'm not even sure that Samsung really will.
