I don't know why you had to reimport your projects. I have an Eclipse workspace from the 2.x era, that have never been replaced by a new one, every Eclipse update is pain free with my settings, plugins need to be updated if they aren't compatible, but the workspace with the imported projects have never been a problem for me

The Play Store, it is the #1 application OEMs need, unless you are a Chinese OEM where you have a big market with established alternative stores.

Do you think your browser is secure? every Firefox and Chrome feature releases contain critical security fixes and I don't hear people giving them the same treatment Flash get. I am not a Flash fan, but It is not fair how browser vendors are not blamed too for their bugs with the same emotion people talk about other technologies. Every time a Slashdot post talk about a new browser release never mention the security bugs, only the nice things

No. I said "wrong" because his assumption is wrong:

For example if I write a hello world program in C++ and iostream.h is GPL. Then hello world can't be released unless it also is GPL. See the problem?

After using GCC and linking against libstdc++, your binary nor your code becomes GPL
