Something in the other thread that made me think of it, someone said that hopefully Apple is not going to enter the pissing competition and start creating/updating their products in order to keep up with Android and others, and overlooking functionality and usability in the process. It made me wonder, is iOS considered to be very stable operating system as it is now? Just by the way of analogy, coming from the world of linux there are many different distributions and some are more stable and some are less. And the less stable are usually those which try to utilize the newest sotfware versions etc. By contrast those that are more stable tend to get criticized for being 'outdated' because they are using only thoroughly tested, polished sowtware, which is obviously not going to be cutting edge. Being a mere user of linux i always tried to stick to the 'outdated' distributions (currently debian), because they are obviously safer and because i do not lose anything by using slightly older version of sofware etc. So my question is, how does iOS rate comparatively to Android for example, would you say that it is more "old" but in return more stable? And if so, do you think Apple is likely to continue to focus on functionality, even if it means losing those customers whose dream is to have a 'cutting edge' phone even if they never going to need it.
