    Android is starting to look and behave more and more like Windows every day. We are seeing failed updates/builds being fed out to users (this weeks failed 2.2 update) frequent force closes on many apps. Virus's and spyware will be soon to come I'm sure.

    I've had my Droid since it came out and feel I have given Android enough time to see where it's headed and the future Google is plotting out for the system/OS mirrors Windows path in the 80s. The final straw for me is this news that the 2.2 update is being halted and postponed because of incompatibility with Flash.

    Why was this not THOROUGHLY tested before release? Google might succeed at market capitilization by saturating the market just as Windows did but will be the inferior product just as Windows is today and has been for many years.

    For Google to have earned any respect and or loyalty in the business they should have focused on making a BETTER product not simply one that was more widely available.

    Sorry Google, but today you FAILED!

    As soon a you code an entire operating system that is open, extendable, running in a gambit of hardware, and never has bugs you may throw stones. Until then please kindly SHUT YER YAPPER.

    You're kidding me right? As soon as I MYSELF code an OS to compete with an OS Google coded with HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS OF CODERS? I want to use an OS that works reliably, properly and effeciently and Android is NOT doing that at this point.

    I seriously wish I knew what the problem was here.

    2.2 had a few bugs, so Verizon stopped pushing it out until they are fixed and we are left with....version 2.1 of Android that works ABSOLUTELY fine.

    I don't know about everyone else, but 2.1 has been very reliable for me...

    The most dominant OS, Windows is failure?? Maybe you should go to Mac/Iphone. and no flash for you

    Yeah I think you can blame Verizon or Motorola for that. I've been using Froyo for over a month now and it hasn't given me a single problem. Security and vulnerabilities are on every platform available so you can't get around that, even OSX and every distro of linux have viruses. The rumored Flash incompatibility is with rights, I can use flash just fine on my device. Google just released the source code, motorola/verizon update it for the droid.

    Yep, glad that your comprehension skills allowed you to get the point.

    Windows is not the market leader because it is superior, in fact MOST experts agree it is in inferior and any person that knows what they are taling about when it comes to software/OS's will tell you the same.

    Windows is the market leader because of smart business moves they made back in the 80s when Microsoft decided to allow any and all hardware manufacturers to license their OS to be used on any device. Apple decided to do just as it is doing today which is only allowing its OS to be installed on Apple devices.

    Google is following in Microsofts footsteps and the future of Android will look much like Windows.

    The issues you describe are nothing more than a common case of PEBCAK.

    So google is to blame because Motorolla/Verizon can't test your version of Android?

    this is stupid, I've been running versions FroYo for 3 months now and yes some ROMS have had problems but it has overall been an enourmous improvement over 2.1/2.0/1.6/1.5

    Honestly the only true OS "bug" I've heard of that gets any attention is the Pandora issue where the new media player (while Faster) decodes AAC files poorly compared to the old one.

    sounds like PEBCAK to me, or at least Motorola, but Android programmers, really?

    Android is a buggy mess and you know it. Look at the Google search widget for instance how it constantly gets stuck at the top of the screen and the only way to fix it is to force close it. That is just one example of the many ways Android is EXTREMELY buggy and sloppy.

    Wow wow wow, you must be some kind of genius, be able to figure out the only reason Microsoft success. Most expert agrees Windows is inferior?? Most Mac expert i assumed. The notion of being able to support so many configuration in a single OS platform is way superior to me. If you like close and one configuration for easy support, then you should really go MAC and iPhone. For us that like variety and open, we like Android and Windows better. Superior or inferior, it's just matter of preferences.

    Ive never had that issue or much of any issue in the 2 months or so that I have been running Froyo builds. FRG01B is quite stable for me. It could be that some apps you have are causing your issues.

    So basically you are saying that android is a failure because vz and motorola can't get their sh*t together? Sounds like you're mad at the carrier, not the OS. The good thing about android is that it is available on just about every carrier. Good luck changing that with an iphone (= but honestly, I can't say I've ever had a phone that was problem free, and android is far from the worse. If you didn't like it, why didn't you just get an iphone or something? Whatever.. you lost credibility when you said that most people agree that windows is "inferor". What do you even mean by that? Inferior to what - mac/linux distros/etc? Well anyways, if what you say is true and google will end up exactly like ms, I don't see how this is possibly bad news for google/android fanboys.

    How about you just stop complaining about Android's "sloppiness" and go here and be happy?

    In his defense (and he needs SOME defense because this is the sloppiest, weakest, most trollish argument I've ever seen), I've seen that issue once before on my phone with an early Froyo leak.

    As for the OP, why don't you go get an iPhone to go with your Mac. Android is never going to get the same polish as iOS, true. That's because we don't live in the walled garden of an overprotective mommy figure of a corporation.

    Nevermind the fact that Android is built upon Linux, a Unix derivative, and the fact that Mac OS X is a Unix derivative. Android is TOTALLY like Windows...

    Aquastorm, I can see where you're coming from. But almost every phone has issues. Android isn't what everybody says it is. My Nokia E70 was a million times better than the Droid.

    And I like how almost every member that posted here lashed out at you. Shows you how much they love their Droids.
