Android's reliance on Google Apps is a problem for everyone.
It hurts hobbyist projects trying to make viable alternative mobile phones (or even just alternative OSes), and now it even hurts billion dollar multi-national corporations like Huawei (and basically every other Chinese OEM).
My only hope is that now that the issue effects people with money and influence, more vendor-neutral, libre alternatives will be developed.
We should not allow one vendor to have control of an "open" OS.
salty about people claiming "carbon neutral" campuses when all that's neutral is the energy being used to run the buildings day to day. nothing about the daily activities inside, the sunk carbon costs of the buildings themselves, maintenance on them, the food served in them, or vehicles going around between them, to name a few things i'd like to harp on.
grr do better
