Google Yes, it's been a long road, but Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has achieved a major milestone. Just over half a year since it's been released, Google's latest Android version has crossed the all-important 7% installed base barrier. This is a major achievement for Android, so Google has reason to celebrate. I'm proud to be part of the 7.1%.

And not just non-technical people.

I started using computers in the 1970's, have written operating systems and built more machines from scratch than I care to admit (including building a processor from SSI logic - not something I'd try again, by the way).

But I've happily ignored the Maemo Update icon on my Nokia N900 for several months now.

My phone works well. It does exactly what I need. It never had the breakout success that would attract script kiddies and other lowlife. And, Nokia has much less motivation to assist if an upgrade buggers the device now that they are Microsoft's BFF.

Soooo. Why would I want to mess with an upgrade, exactly?
