re ma1010 "Winner takes all"
How about Winners take all?
With Android there are 100's of millions of winners.
Even the one loser, Oracle, can well afford to do so.
Much better for a civilised society that way, do you not think?
On a topical note, same with the RIO olympics. Sure there have been a few hundred gold medal winners, some nicely positioned IOC officials and ambassadorial VP's who have done very well for themselves but there are also billions of losers who will now forego better housing, education and health care to pay for it.
My £0.02 worth says it isn't leading us to a better or even more civilised society. On the contrary.
