Re: Android

Not at all improbable. Like the Caliphate during the Middle Ages, Oracle has blocked Google's way forward with a Java derived O/S for Android, forcing Google to turn West towards the New World, specifically Redmond.

So do tell how do they manage that with an open source product, headed by a very passionate founder?

Dammed if they do, dammed if they don't.

Remove the blinkers and move on.
