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%.

Meanwhile, in the iOS world, a developer just writes to the latest version, knowing that most of devices in the wild will be on that version.

...and when Apple screw up an update, as they did with iOS 4 for older iDevices, users of perfectly working hardware have to install the knowingly broken update on their phone or PMP in order to use the latest software.

At some point in their lifetime, all OSs reach a level of maturity where updates do not matter so much anymore, as happened to Windows around the XP SP2 days. This cannot happen soon enough to iOS and Android.
