    Do you ever get frustrated by OEM skins? I work with electronics on a daily basis, specifically mobile devices. Most customers I talk to have a bad taste in their mouth for Android, and it typically stems from issues caused by customizations made by manufacturers, such as: lack of software updates, glitchiness, lag, unessecary applications, and highly unintuitive UX modifications. Are there any plans to reign these detracting modifications in, or is that at least something you'd like to see?

      I get frustrated by everything in the world that isn’t absolutely perfect and beautiful. The most frustrating UI I’ve dealt with today is simply trying to keep up with all these questions! :-)

      What I’d really like to see with Android is an ecosystem where there are customizations out there that can serve every different taste and need, but can hang together so that users can choose which device fits them without having to relearn anything.

      Think of driving a car - no matter whether it’s a Honda or BMW or a Tesla, it’s going to have a steering wheel, the brake on one side and the throttle on the other. They may have totally different dash configurations and styling - which is appropriate for their different needs - but you know how to drive them all, and frankly they’re all great cars.
