A success, or failure?

It's still to early to tell where Project Ara will go. Once it hits the consumer market, it'll be either expensive as hell or not, or the drive for deep customization to what Android has been built to be will skyrocket, creating a whole market of custom modules. People that are for it are looking forward to radio swapping modules when switching carriers, or camera lenses from general to near-pro quality. Some want chicklet keyboards back.

So... Windows XP is unsupported now. Followers, if you are still using Windows XP as your daily computer, it's best to research upgrade options. If you can't afford it, look into Linux, preferably Ubuntu.
