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.

Crapware on Windows

To me, crapware is stuff that comes pre-installed but that I don't use. On Windows, you can simply remove crapware, but on mobile phones, the issue is more complex.

This is debatable. On Windows, since at least Windows 98, you have Trident shoved in all places where it's not needed, creating multiple major security holes, in order to justify users' inability to remove IE.
