You have a good point there. There is not a chance in hell that I would use Google phone, hell I refuse to use even Gmail. I just have to laugh at all the idiots in the world who are now jumping on the Google bandwagon thinking they are the anti-Microsoft. They are no different, if not worse in their behavior. The only difference is they use Linux, to which they make changes which they refused to release, and they get all the Linux geeks jumping on their bandwagon. Almost 95% of everyone on my local Linux user group uses Gmail, pathetic. No, I would not assume that Microsoft's services are any different or better. I just think it very ignorant and naive how people see Google.

I see them for what they are, a large mega corporation that has no respect for my privacy. If they come out with their own Linux distro, it will be a cold day in hell before I would load that garbage.
