A lot of people who should know better think that the GUI is the OS. As 
far as I know, Firefox OS is Linux with all GUI interfacing done by 
HTML5 hence JavaScript etc., from my limited reading I don't know 
whether there's a native-code capability which might mean that as a 
platform it's even more restrictive than Android.
