damn this is a very good move. The may not have success but they should try to make them tell customers about the bloatware on their product pages.

IMO, the bug problem with big manufacturers causing a bad Android experience is that most users can't separate Android from the manufacturer and shed a very bad light on it.

If an average user doesn't know what an operating system is, and he hates Samsung(just an example) for some reason he just buys a phone from another company like HTC, Apple, Nokia,....

But usually the average user know about Android installed, and if sbd. has had a bad experience with company A, they say "hey Android sucks, it's all over bugs", and they'll try Windows Phone or iOS next time.

It should be illegal to shed such a bad light on a Software and then - in case of Samsung with Tizen - just switch to another OS.
Samsung and Oppo are facing the heat in China after being sued for adding bloatware to their smartphones.

+Aleksandar Stefanović I did not say that it should be illegal to install bloatware. I said that IF they wanna do this they have to clarify that they did so and they should inform people that they are using a opensource project which they modified and that there are very different variants of Android across manufacturers.

aren't there some crucial features like context menus and selectable text missing in qml-material atm?

I'd like to know if/how these will be implemented

yes thx. It just seems like these features would be missing by concept because Android doesn't support them either.

atm nothing is selectable and the actionbar is used for all commands.
When I thought about a material console or file manager app I couldn't think of a way without these features.

Especially because we should completely stay away from features like long-pressing a item because we all know this was just a right-click workaround for touchscreens in first place and nobody expects such a behavior on a (non-touch) computer.

Boot speed of my ATIVBook8 notebook with the 840EVO SSD and ArchLinux(installed in UEFI mode).

I didn't know that yet and I just hope for freedom's sake that manufacturers won't go the smartphone way.
Windows 10 hardware must support Secure Boot and won't have to let you turn it off.
