While acknowledging the OS was interesting, he said â€œI don’t think the world needs another platformâ€.
Claiming anyone who did wanted a different OS from Android was only doing this â€œfor political reasonsâ€, he insisted the whole world should run Android.
Andy, who used to work for Microsoft at WebTV and then at Danger before Microsoft acquired it, took Microsoftâ€™s new OS as a personal insult. â€œThey don’t like the people who developed [it]â€ he said.
Despite all his experience at Microsoft, he however went on to claim Google invented cloud services, such as â€œGmail, and YouTube, and Google Talk and everything elseâ€, conveniently forgetting that Hotmail and MSN existed well before Google got into the webmail game, and were still much bigger than Googleâ€™s supposed â€œday zeroâ€ services.
Ending in a Confucius-like paradoxical statement, he said â€œI think it’s good to have the benefit of choice, but in the end I don’t think the world needs another platform.â€
I guess, Andy, its any choice as long as its Android then?
