    Seen as good idea but Google is somehow related on Android with Rust code and Samsung has sometimes ideas for image(and more importantly Samsung Apps) to be available on monitors and his effort for Linux on phones is commercially unsuccessful but who knows when his laptops are competition for Chromebooks on Asian markets, but maybe not so affordable with policies for schools buy in ...

    Samsung have their own apps store but seems as Gaming is All-In and some connection with MS Pay is prohibited by the Google Email Act on mandatory ActiveGoogleDirectory android integration and it seems that regulation is needed but in MS phone division and countries business markets.

            jesus i just read about this and what a clusterfuck. I thought manufacturers were getting better with updates, but I guess I'm just getting partial updates instead.

              Looks like Qualcomm is keeping their word
              Hope they'll try to do the same for their mobile phone SoC's.

                  I thought the whole point of the freeze was so you could guarantee three additional versions of Android would be supported?
