Indeed not. And they are quite deliberately absent -because I am very determined to resist the temptation to trade argument over features - because that's not the point I am making and never has been
Let me try and summarise how I see it.
1) You have made it clear what you like and find important.
2) I have said that those things simply do not matter to me, and that some of thing I actively dislike. I have read and understood the arguments in favour, and decided (as is my right) that I reject them.
Note I've NOT said "you're wrong" or "They're crap" - or anything similar. Merely that, to me, they are worthless or worse. And also that it would appear that I am far from being alone.
3) I've said there are other things which I do value which I don't find with Apple and do find elsewhere.
I have not the slightest doubt that these things will be of little or no value to you and, indeed, you will actively dislike some of them and reject all the arguments I offer in their favour. So much so that I concede the point without you even having to make it.
So let me go back to my key point: I will not buy a product where the choice of applications I can run on that product is limited to a "walled garden".
This choice is for both practical and philosophical reasons. It matters a very great deal to me on both counts.
I am fully aware of some of the implications and consequences of this choice. I believe I can cope with and handle those consequences and have been doing so successfully for some considerable time now.
During that time - I have seen, experienced and had to deal with some of those consequences. They were manageable. Those experiences have not (even remotely) caused me to question or change my views on that core underlying choice to reject "The Walled Garden".
I am also aware I am not alone in having views like this.
So, in practice, the iOS Style of App. Store is indeed a feature which attract many, and it will also repel many others - even people who have thought about it and heard all the arguments in favour. Ultimately who are you to say that they are wrong?
Put simply just one more case of "One Size does NOT fit all".
