This just has to come out. You know, thinking about Microsoft's Surface Duo or whatever, all I can think of it is that it's running Android. Why? Because hardware doesn't matter to me, not that much. Sure, RAM and CPU power matters to me, and disk space of course. But what really matters, ...

I’m just curious. Is there anyone other than Fandroids, (die-hard fans of Android) or Google who is seriously suggesting that Android is on par with Apple when it comes to productive accessibility?

On a more serious note, I think Devin’s making a very valid point. Apple may be a company I hate to love, but there’s a reason I switched from Android to Apple a long time ago and it has nothing to do with my love of corporations

The only part of Devin’s post I’d quibble with is the part about whether or not people are pushing for accessibility in the open source arena. If there’s not buy-in from project maintainers and/or project founders, accessibility is going to be an up-hill battle.

And it doesn’t help that the leadership of the open source and free software communities are basically ambivolent at best about this whole accessibility thing.

I was actually looking into getting myself a Surface, but if they’re running Android I think I’ll hold off on that.

Oh and hi devin, glad I found you on the fediverse. That was a nice Monday morning bonus.
