Let's take another example: iOS and Android. iOS is allows only
software to be run on it. All software run locally on this operating
system must be acquired only from the iTunes store.
No, you can sideload apps with iOS devices, probably even using Linux
and the imobiledevice utilities, and certainly with XCode on OSX.
similarly by default, allowing only carrier-installed software and
content from the Google Play store, but it also offers an option in
the settings to allow users to install packages from elsewhere as well.
Mozilla in this metaphor is striving to become iOS
Best get the metaphor technically correct then ;)
