Android とひと括りにすべきではない・・・

Neither Microsoft, Nokia, nor anyone else should fork Android. It’s unforkable. | Ars Technica

Android isn’t designed to be forked. With GMS, Google has deliberately designed Android to resist forking. Suggestions that Microsoft scrap its own operating system in favor of such a fork simply betray a lack of understanding of the way Google has built the Android platform.

This infographic leaves no doubt that Android faces more problems than any other software platform — mobile or otherwise — in the history of this industry. And the trend is undoubtedly that there will be even more of this before all is said and done and, hopefully, settled.

[…] A company that treates copyright this way — also according to Oracle’s allegations — may be similarly arrogant and reckless when patents are concerned. Google just exposes its entire ecosystem to legal risks. If it goes well, Google reaps most of the rewards. If it doesn’t, others will have to pick up most of the bill.
