Google Once upon a time, in a land, far, far away, there were two mobile operating systems. One of them was designed for mobile from the ground up; the other was trying really hard to copy its older, desktop brother. One was limited in functionality, inflexible and lacked multitasking, but was very efficient, fast, and easy to use. The other had everything and the kitchen sink, was very flexible and could multitask, but had a steep learning curve, was inconsistent, and not particularly pretty.

"Of course, as the best football player in history famously said, ieder voordeel heb z'n nadeel, and this applies to Android's flexibility as well.


I wasn't aware that George Best spoke any Dutch.

It's wrong anyway. It's "Ieder nadeel heeft zijn voordeel" which translates to "Every disadvantage has its advantage".

"Elk nadeel heb z'n voordeel." is the correct quote.
