Goolag will eventually dump Android in favor for Fushia

I don’t know about you, but I believe that Android is what made most people who would otherwise never go to smartphones go to smartphones.

So what if Goolag decides they’ll discontinue Android in favor for Fushia?
Fushia is NOT running on the Linux kernel, but instead they invented their own kernel, and therefore they no longer have the obligation to make the OS (partially) open source.
It might be open source at first to lure the FOSS fans to the OS, but it’s their own kernel, so it would be naive to not expect a blatant bait and switch at one point.
And the reason why Android is so great is exactly because they can’t legally lock it down (I don’t care about legal, but all the slaves, I mean way too many people do).

From what I’ve seen, Fushia might eventually become as locked down as iOS has been since 2007.
If not initially, it would be later eventually.
Just like how WinDOS is getting more and more locked down like macOS as time goes on, which is also getting more and more locked down like iOS.
Slow boil of the (gay) frogs.

Of course Goolag will debunk it, but history showed us again and again and again and again, when the same developer has to maintain 2 different things doing basically the same thing, they’ll dump one in favor for the other, so don’t expect Goolag to keep Android around when Fushia starts gaining (artificial) popularity.

JewTube also has a massive track record of installing a new feature while a similar one not only still works fine, but is superior over the new one too, then they break that older one bit by bit, then they lock people out of that older feature, and then they say “well, looks like nobody cares about that older feature anymore, so I guess we can remove it then”.
