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.

Also if I'm not mistaken with FirefoxOS only a small part of the firmware updates of the system is handled by the network operator.

They only handle the lowest parts (like kernel and base OS), Mozilla handles the rest (just like on the desktop automatic updates of Firefox).
