When I first wrote about my feelings towards the App Store, it was in the arrogant and vain hope that it might have changed something. The direction of the iPhone OS ecosystem is now clear. To stick to an opinion regardless is to see the world as you would like it to be, not as it actually is.
Down that road lies the Free Software Foundation, and I have zero interest in finding myself in 2020 a bitter forty-something man fighting the battles of a decade ago.
This is great news. How can you not want someone writing for the iPhone OS who so clearly gets it?
Android can have all the angry political and philosophical developers. I want developers who understand the platform for which they’re writing, and also understand the user doesn’t give a damn about their causes; they just want a product that kicks ass.
