Fork it! Google fined €4.34bn over Android, has 90 days to behave

I wonder how many people would (vs wouldn't) just go ahead and install Google services on a phone if they didn't come pre-installed.

My guess is that more would than wouldn't. By a seriously long way.

Want to use a different search engine other than Google? Fair enough. But most people use Google. Not because Google have told them to, but because it's, you know, the best one. See also Google Docs - what's the better/free alternative to that with equivalent functionality? Fancy driving round the whole world in your car to take Street View photos for your rival of Google Maps? All the best...
