Zen of users
"When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called a Religion."
— Robert M. Pirsig (Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values)
Clearly, there are two kinds of mobile users out there - those for whom it's just a tool to get things done and those for whom it's a religious/cultural/style exercise. That the former are willing to make or improve some of their tools makes them likely android users is fine with me. That there are hordes of the other kind is also fine with me.
My confusion is when the respective camps complain about each other's app model and control. It is what it is, folks - life is full of little choices, some of them hard.
