I am taking the plunge and moving from an iPhone to an Android device. I've been waiting a long time for Android to get to the point that it was fast and responsive enough, with a big enough application warehouse, wide enough support, and a smooth enough experience, to support me. Android is maturing with a consistent, system-wide look-and-feel, almost every major service now has an Android app as the counterpart to its iOS-first experience, and has a bright future with wearables, home automation, and more.

I certainly won't be the first person to change ecosystems entirely. Several have done it before, some looking for change or claim freedom, some aiming to save money, some because someone prompted them, some think they may be conforming by going with the ever-stylish Apple. I am doing it for this reason: for me, Android is now a better platform than iOS.

"I am always amazed to see how some people feels the needs to justify their own choice and try to explain why this one is better than the other one.

I'm always amazed why people like to read things they hate and then complain about having to read things they hate.

I’m not surprised at all. Part of the draw of websites like Slashdot, Ars Technica, and OSNews is the comments section, where people can discuss their opinions. It’s fun, even if 90% of it is whining and bitching. ;)
