    I had a poster I respect on Phone Arena point out to me that he thought it was strange that Microsoft became the giant it is by allowing it's computer software to be open and customizable, but than went with an Apple style of phone OS instead of the Google style. People want to make their phones their own, and want their Samsung to be a little different from their LG.
    I believe that's because they don't want an unraveled mess like they had with Windows Mobile. This is something they have a degree of control over and ensure that the end user has a relatively pleasant experience. I'd say customization isn't mutually exclusive. Microsoft probably is looking into that but who knows it could be overridden by other principles they have on keeping that particular end user experience
