Well I have recently noticed that certain developers have decided to ditch the X2 and move on to greener pastures with the Nexus. Now I know this will bring me some negative feedback but I must say what I feel,now this is purely from a personal point of view and I'm not trying to convince anyone else to agree or see things my way. But I am saddened to see how quickly people have abandoned the free spirit of the "open source community" I know that is the reason why everyone is jumping ship to the Nexus because it is a true open source google phone. But what I am talking is whatever happened to that independent spirit and the reason that android has come such a long way to become one of if not the premier mobile operating systems in the world.
What am I talking about? I'm talking about that spirit that we as humans have to fight against the norm,stand up for change and not be some drones that accept whatever is giving us and say I don't like it i want to change it!
Apple is known and highly regarded as being stingy and not allowing an open source with their products,and that is why we Android lovers have come to appreciate and love our Dev's for their relentless and dedicated spirit to change,open,and unlock our Droid phones!
Is Samsung becoming the Apple of Android where the only phone worth building Roms and themes is going to be the Next Nexus and all other phones will go into a forgotten oblivion and soon just becoming ancient relics? And the worst part is that we the consumer are the ones doing this when we say that we would all rather just buy the phone that presents less opposition and easier to change.
If this were the way everyone felt we would all be Iphone users, I personally think that having a choice is a great thing i don't want to be the same Cookie cutter house on the block I want my house to be a representation of me and my personality just like I want my phone to be the same thing I want people to look at it and say that person has individuality!
I really hope that we don't become an Iphone community and that we can continue to be different from each other and strive for independence form one another. So for MY PART i will never jump ship to the Nexus just because it is less of a hassle I know that I am just one person and that I don't matter but I know that Humanity as a whole would still be marveling at the wagon wheel if we all just went along with the crowd and no one ever said I want to be different or I have a better idea !
A quickly forgotten X2 user.
