Sorry, but you severly underestimate the problem. Severely. When she was on warfarin she had to take blood tests several times a week, and they kept changing the dose because her diet wasn't rigidly unchanging.

If you have a secret, I do not recommed using a mobile phone to discuss it.
Or indeed, telling anyone about it at all.
I live in an apartment and a couple of years ago my neighbours bought Guitar Hero or something similar. They played with it for about two days. Then they stopped (and sold the hardware) when the building management gave them an ultimatum over the number of noise complaints they had received.
It has been going down hill ever since they removed the cocaine and cola nuts.
Well, my wife needs a blood thinner, but strenuously avoided coumadine-warfarin. You can't eat green vegetables if you take warfarin, because vitamin K deactivates it. (So she's taking apixaban, which isn't affected by diet.)
That's all very nice, but MS is a software company. I'll admit I was thinking of cross-platform development environments, like their announced open source
That said, if I'd been thinking of consumer end-products I'd never have made that statement. MSOffice for Apple has been out for ages...and MSWord 5.2a for the Mac was the best word processor I've ever used. Far superior to any later versions, and it fixed a lot of bugs from the previous versions. These days it wouldn't be so good as, of course, it didn't handle unicode, but that's still the only improvement that I know about.
Yes, "he" claimed to be relating things from God. But what did he mean by that term? The available texts are too incomplete for me to decide...and they've been pruned by people with axes to grind. I can't be certain that I disagree with him, even though my belief in God is purely materialistically based.
While I agree that there's no good evidence that Jesus, per se, existed, there's some evidence that a person somewhat similar existed several decades before the time Jesus is supposed to have lived. Or at least someone who promulgated the doctrines that Jesus is reported to have promulgated. (Ignoring those of his disciples that diverge from the "red letter" text.)
It's been awhile since I looked at this so I can't be closer than "several decades", but it was somewhere between about 40 years and about 400 years. (Not a big help, I admit.) I think it was related to the Essenes.

Most illogical, these female humans...
This one hits close to home.
As a child in the late 1960s I was inspired to my present technical life and career by two major influences: Project Apollo and Star Trek. I thought Spock had the coolest job in the universe. He played with techie stuff and figured stuff out. I wanted that sort of job too. And I got it.
The early Android phones had very limited processing power, ROM and RAM - the equivalent of an 8086. Now we are getting phones with 4GB RAM (I remember mainframes with less than 1MB), then upgrading is not going to face the restrictions it did when there was only 86M of RAM.
As for "waiting for you carrier to upgrade" - you must live in the USA or Australia. Carriers elsewhere DO upgrade. However, I predict that locked boot loaders will go the way of the "Not quite IBM compatible PCs", and the Video cameras that were not Super8.
I have two Samsungs, one with a third party ROM, other with Touchwiz. The way I hear it, Lollipop is not yet ready for primetime. If you want a bug infested phone with no upgrade path, there is always Windows.
It is ridiculous of course. It is also a common attitude among PI's toward their postdocs and students, especially in high-profile, high-pressure labs.
This letter from a PI to a worker made the rounds a few years ago. The PI claimed later it was a joke. It doesn't read like a joke, and the exact same attidude is not uncommon at all:
