What's the difference (besides open source) of mod vs os? Is os only on the oneplusone, or can you still get it for other devices? Any cost?

If only they opened the Windows Phone open to android apps, The windows Phone would probably actually take off finally. Right now it is incredibly sad.

if this is true cyanogen now no worse then samsung,HTC,LG etc adding bloat to android. slimrom and paronoid android roms are just a few roms that are just as good as cyanogen
You realize these are all optional right? Just like the article says. A lot of people would like to have access to these for work. But if you don't want them you don't have to have them. Like sykozis said, choice isn't bad.

How do you propose they do that, exactly? Anyway, it's got all the core apps I'd ever want and I don't buy a phone just because all my bros have the same one. I buy what works for me.

Completely agree. If you buy a Windows Phone so you can try/use 3rd party apps, your doing it wrong. Windows phones are all about the Microsoft environment. Simply put, for pretty much every case, Microsoft/Nokia have produced every app you need for productivity.

No different from what Apple, Samsung, Google, Intel and every other company has done.

Most users don't need a VPN client for their phone.
I'm not sure on what basis that generalization was made, but I've come across snooping by strangers when using public WiFi networks. $5/mo for a VPN service to protect your privacy over WiFi seems worth it to me.

Generalization? So, I guess since you "need" a VPN client, you think everyone does.

While everyone should use security software and generally avoid "public" wifi, not everyone actually "needs" a VPN client on their phone. You shouldn't even be accessing "sensitive" information from your phone. But that's common sense anyway....

No, you said that, only in reverse. I said a VPN seemed worth it TO ME, given my experience. YMMV
