Keep in mind that this fragmentation that you are griping about will be just a memory as Android keeps on pace to merging Chrome OS and 4.0+. That is what is happening.
People will keep upgrading their phones and new customers will be getting their first taste in the future and Android will be so much better. Gingerbread and Froyo will be things of the past...sooner than later.
Google will become more stringent with manufacturers and carriers and their custom skins and software hacks that make updates such a PITA.
BUT, if want to just sit and complain, enjoy your Apple.
