To be fair, I probably should have included a trigger warning for that headline. I can see Android user's eyes start to twitch at the mere suggestion that the future of Android is Windows.

Android's biggest strength has ironically become its greatest weakness: the fact that it's free and open source. By releasing Android into the wild back in 2008, vendors were able to enter the smartphone market without either the initial investment in developing their own OS, or the licensing fees that would increase overall unit pricing.
