The Î¼g Project aims to provide a free, fully compatible replacement of the often used proprietary GAPPS package by Google.
Very little information is available at this point, but I’ve always wondered why nobody ever tried to create open source replacements for the various Google Apps – most notably Google Play Services. This is clearly in its very early stages, but it’d be fantastic if we could one day have a drop-in replacement for Play Services, ensuring you could have a truly Google-free Android device while still being able to run applications that use the Play Services APIs.

Yeah, I find somewhat stange that everybody wants to get away from Google software, yet are eager to use Android because it is so “open” (AOSP, CyanogenMod, etc…)
Cyanogen has run their own market, etc… If you really wants to get out from the Google ecosystem, you know, I bet OpenMoko would be more than happy to welcome you.
Seriously, it’s Google’s platform and ecosystem, I can understand they are driving it the way they want. Just like Microsoft do with Windows (8, RT, Phone).
Not happy with ? Jolla, SailfishOS, Tizen, WebOS, …
