Google TechCrunch held a little in-promptu poll a few days ago, asking its readers why they chose to go with Android instead of something else. Most people stated they choose Android because of "openness". The author of the article calls this "a load of crap", arguing that because carriers can do with Android as they so desire, the reality now is that Android isn't open. Clearly, the author doesn't get openness.

Android is not open to users. Vendors, yes. But not to users.

Now to backstep a bit...sophisticated users with plenty of time on their hands can do "wonderful" things with Android.
