Gnome Honest question. Do you think the GNOME project is as healthy today as it was, say, 4 years ago? Benjamin Otte explains that no, it isn't. GNOME lacks developers, goals, mindshare and users. The situation as he describes it, is a lot more dire than I personally thought.

You can apply that logic also, for example, to XFCE when it wins the Linux Desktop race but you happen to be WindowManager fan.

Android is a Linux based opensource product. You can take it, change it, remove/add/edit code and redistribute when you are not happy about whatever.

Face it, Android is "us" and you have the freedom to make it "me" by e.g. forking. Do it if you like but not complain if you don't. If you rather like to work on a compitor then, by all means, do that but not complain "Android is not we" when your compitor does not gain similar marketshare since what you really mean is "Android is not my invention" what is a huge difference.
