    I realized I liked the modding way more than the UI/UX.
    I have the exact opposite opinion! I've been using Nexus devices the last couple years, and I have lost all desire for modding. I usually root, but otherwise I leave them completely stock.

    The UI is a different story. I prefer WP's UI when I'm looking at it, but the preference goes away when I start to use it. I much prefer the Android/iOS UI for actual use.

    RumoredNow=likes Android for the modding possibilities but prefers WP's UI.
    tgp=doesn't mod Android but prefers its UI.

    We're all cool, right?

    I haven't rooted my Nexus 7, but I'm using Nova Launcher.

    Sounds exactly correct and very cool.

    When you get the chance, look at francoKernel and Xposed over on XDA... There's a lot of good mileage in that stuff. I had it on a 1st gen N7 as well as the N4.

    Good luck with whichever way you go, OP. Whether you switch to iOS or Android, you'll get a great MS experience. If you go Android, try the Moto G or E. They're decent phones at good prices, plus they aren't too heavily skinned. As close as you can get to Nexus products without having a Nexus product.

    Trojan Horse. Obviously.
    Promoting Android.

    Edit: Actually, a Trojan Horse would likely keep it secret. So my first sentence is wrong.

    Why not? I'm not the only mod from Mobile Nations who has multiple devices on multiple platforms. Some mods have Android, BlackBerry, iPhone and Windows Phone.

    You won't see it in my signature, since only the mobile apps such as Tapatalk show which device is used, but I also use desktop Linux in addition to desktop Windows.

    Many of the members here use devices from android or apple as well as windows. I use android at work for example. It's about using devices that fit your needs. Makes us a little more well-rounded I think.

    Nexus 7 is rooted, but I'll wait until Xposed is out of alpha for Lollipop 5.1.1. I don't think it's ready for prime time yet.
