On lots of the implementations I have seen either the menu loops indefinitely or it just disconnects you. To be honest though this is something I only have noticed in countries in the Mediterranean. So maybe it is somehow related to economic insolvency?

No, the violence started because some clueless religious fanatics:
1. can't comprehend the idea of free speech
2. would outrage even if they did understand

It's a moebious strip really. The film exists because people exist that would organize mass violence about anything that puts their faith in bad light, which sort of is the film.

I have to side with the fanatics on this one though; there isn't one redeemable thing to the film. Viewing it, even in order to teach people what not to do, could easily be classified as psychological torture.

There is no reason why one would need an additional layer of abstraction to implement such a thing. That's why Firefox OS is even possible. You just get rid of all the java, replace it with a nice js compiler and of you go. So instead of having to write a java vm for each new architecture, device devs just implement the compiler onto it.
