To be sure, it's no magic solution to the gargantuan task of moving the entire Android ecosystem forward. And the update situation for non-flagship devices remains something of a crapshoot. But it's a start, and a big step in the right direction. And as we move from Jelly Bean into the KitKat era, it's enough to give us some hope for the future of Android updates.

Read on to find out why.

Still Android's biggest weakness. Baby steps are made, but a solution there is not.

Buying a PC without Windows

Sigh, not that old wives tale again.
Even Dell and HP will sell you a PC without Windows if you look hard enough. There are plenty of suppliers who will happily sell you a device with no OS loaded.

Sure if you just look at places like BestBuy or PC-World you have no choice but really, in 2014 do you think that is is impossible to avoid the MS tax?
No it ain't.
