Yes, actually. all the time. [...] You'd have to be living in a cave to miss all those arguments!

I didn't say, that there are no arguments, but
- they don't use this exact phrase "fragmentation". the different naming suggests, that this is something special for android, but in fact it's the same issue you have on other platforms, that consist of more than 5 devices as well
- nobody draws the conclusion, that his web/windows thing is inherently doomed because if its diversity.

1/ Maybe not the term "fragmentation" specifically, but there's still arguments about essentially the same topic.

I suspect this might be the same point you're making, however I'm a little confused about your point. Why the emphasis on the term "fragmentation" when the discussions are equivalent?

2/ That is very true.
