Re: Wish Android was as Open as webOS
Hardly. I was a launch day buyer of the OG Palm Pre and a major proponent of WebOS, but the sadly underpowered hardware and total confusion and ultimate pooch-screwing by Palm and HP of the marketing and support strangled it in its crib. The launch day purchase of my OG EVO was like getting out of a year-long abusive relationship. When I realized I could click a link in an email and be assured that the browser would open and not give me a "Too Many Cards Open" error (when only email was open!), was the greatest day ever.

I can't remember what all I needed to patch in for my phone, but the only things I've needed to root for on my Androids was to run Titanium Backup and BetterBatteryStats.
You can do plenty with Android without "having to break into it." Android is the most open OS available. No one lied to you. You're just looking to troll.
