Time for a brutal TELLY-OFF: Android TV versus Firefox OS

"I reckon the dumb panel will go obsolete less often than the brain."

If firmware upgrades on TVs are anything like cellphones, you're at the whim of the vendor. That is, after a couple of minor fixes (and a plethora of ad-inducing extras) you're going to be stuck with that version forever more.

I'm so glad I opted for a regular PC with customised windows settings turning it into an appliance. It does absolutely everything, without the crap. And if there is crap, it can be worked around anyway.

Thanks, but I'm not sold on any of the smart tv os's.
