Legal After Microsoft's extortion racket has failed to stop Android, and after Oracle's crazy baseless lawsuit failed to stop Android, and after Nokia adopting Windows Phone failed to stop Android, Microsoft, Nokia, and Oracle are now grasping the next straw in their fruitless efforts to stop Android: they've filed an antitrust complaint with the EU, claiming Google unfairly bundles applications with Android.

I wouldn't be worried too much

A lot of the users use Android because of the features and flexibility it provides, not because of GMail, YouTube etc. If I was an OEM, I would not mind to set up a start-up screen and ask the users if they want to use -- "GMail" "Outlook" -- or "Google Search or Bing". I am sure users will make the correct choice. As for the Play store, that's gotta be there or other company's application stores will also have to go.

I am also surprised by how ridiculous their complaints are. Pure non-sense and illogical.

Well, don't be. It's them (Microsoft, Nokia, and Oracle), the usual 'victim' in IT world.

I use it because it's not Microsoft, and especially because it's not Apple. *ducks*

Of course, the fact that Linux is its core is nice too, but I'd say that's just a bonus.
