Google Forget patent trolling - Android's biggest weakness, and most daunting obstacle to overcome, is its complete and utter lack of updates. Motorola has detailed its upgrade plans for Ice Cream Sandwich - and it ain't good. If the company Google just bought can't even update its phones properly, what can we expect from the rest?

There is a reason why I advocate Windows Phone 7 and iPhone's but I guess people on this forum [snip] will never learn in favour of believing that being an Android fanboy is 'sticking to the man'.

Wrong assumption. Why is using Android "sticking it to the man"? Google is "the man". Most techies using Android are choosing to use a phone that:

A.) Isn't locked out the wazoo.
B.) Works well with alternative systems.

Windows Phone 7? I might be wrong, but my guess it being an MS phone, it ties in heavily with Windows. I don't use Windows and I'm not planning to.

iPhone? I've experienced the activation process and it ties into iTunes. Which either requires Windows or Mac OS X. I have neither. So seems to be a no go too.
