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.

no patent payments to Apple or Microsoft AFAICS etc


The only reasons patents wouldn't be an issue is because it isn't popular enough to be in anyone's sights. If it ever does become a concern to them, you can be sure they will be finding appropriate patents that they can claim are being infringed.
