I think that the economy of scale will make higher performance phones a frugal possibility in near future. The trend has always been moving that way. So why bother developing an OS that will probably be obsolescent in a matter of couple years? Even if it is presented as a reasonable alternative, the fashion factor of other operating systems and the combined marketing efforts of parent companies will make Firefox OS a joke. I know that geeks might get excited at open-source anything, but most people really, truly, and honestly Do Not Care.

Assuming that there are no major pieces missing from this report. I think that the school management is simply inexperienced in these sorts of things and treats technology like magic. To them, anyone who'd dare to suggest flaw (much less demonstrate one) in the holy binary box that is their software is kin to a witch - a creepy hacker who by the power of covenant devil aims to make them look like fools they really are. ~Forgive them father, for they know not what they do. :P
