I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, "I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!" I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell - "I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!"

I would love to support your cause, but I need to ask you a question. What is the linux equivalent of this "go to your windows" step?

There is a white knight saving us from Google domination while still firmly grounded in the Android camp: Cyanogenmod. They're starting to ship presintalled in devices, now. I hope it's an ongoing trend, since the true power of open source is the ability to fork. And if more and more closely related forks appear, Google will want to keep everything compatible with its Play Store, which will halt its gradual proprietarization (eh?) of Android.

The pre-installed Cyanogenmod on the Oppo N1 is Google certified, akin to TouchWiz on Samsung, Sense on HTC, or Timescape on Xperia, and not exactly a fork.

Probably true, just a bit worried since it ships with 12.04 which is almost two years old. 13.10 would be a better choice to get a more useful version of Unity.

12.04 is the current LTS, and will be supprted and patched until 2017. Alternatively, almost any hardware that is supported on 12.04 will run just fine on 13.x, with maybe certain AMD cards as an exception, but that has nothing to do with ubuntu

Life is difficult because it is non-linear.
