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.

Could we please stop saying "you are not the customer, X is"? or "you are not the customer, you are the product"? The latter has already been debunked*, and the former... As if it was incompatible? Both you and the carrier are the customers.
