It is not very mature. But it is not as unpolished as Android 1.5 was when it was released. Everything is optimized for HTML5, so it should be very easy to develop HTML5 apps for the platform. Everything you can do in a Firefox desktop browser can be done by a FOS device. I saw simple 2D games running smoothly, but as they natively support WebGL you should see 3D games anytime soon.

Firefox OS will first be installed on entry-level devices. So the device itself will not compete against high-end Android, Windows Phone or iOS smartphones. They are targeted at completely different markets

They are sold out for both models. That was quick. Just a couple of hours. But they probably did not have many units in stock to start with

A nice little alternative for those who don't want to roll over for Google or Microsoft or iOS. Good luck to them!
