We need to kill the myth that android has any of the good features of open source. AOSP has a few of those features, but not all that many. Google Android drops almost all of this and takes major components and replaces them with closed-source blobs. That doesn't have to be a problem, but Google's methods made it one and it's really annoying hearing people laud it as open when it most assuredly is not.

And nobody tell me about how Android means that Linux is winning or provides us with a wonderful Linux system. I will fight you.
