In the News Okay, so this is entirely new to me. Sparrow is was an email client for Mac OS X and iOS (and Windows), which brought a decent Gmail experience to these platforms - as opposed to Apple's own not-so-good Gmail support and Google's Gmail iOS application which, well, is just a webpage. Google has now acquired Sparrow, and basically all hell has broken loose, to the point of Rian van der Merwe writing that 'we' lost "faith in a philosophy that we thought was a sustainable way to ensure a healthy future for independent software development, where most innovation happens".

I'm wondering what would have been the reaction of the Apple crowd if Apple instead of Google had bought Sparrow.

More on the subject, I don't see why people are complaining. They paid for an app and as far as I know, they can still use the app and Sparrow even said they'll provide maintenance fixes.
