Quoting:Even Android evidently can't go as low as Firefox OS though OEMs are certainly trying (don't forget, Android licensees have to pay Microsoft to use Android).

Running one's own apps on Firefox OS would take no more than having ones own website, and coding HTML 5 "apps".

Third party stuff on FF OS would be a doddle, so too would malicious websites. But all in all I think it beats having to code to Googles API for Android or Windows Phone, and getting past Apples gatekeepers. I think FF OS really frees up the Mobile OS ecosystem in much the same way the net has already done so. There are I think huge possibilities for this, that I can't even imagine just yet.

It's a completely, or at least potentially so, an open ecosystem. The handset players may attempt to lock it down with proxies and such, but in the end I think the cats out of the bag.
