    iOS 8 is considered as one of the best operating systems for some good reasons. Making a place for oneself in such a competitive market is not a cake walk.

    Really? As long as there is a little blue square that people can touch to get their FB/Twitter fix they are happy. Most users advocating one system over another don't even know any of the features or benefits that would make one more useful to them than the other.

    Back in the day users that could use CMD/Bash, edit windows registry, write scripts for their chosen OS, Compile kernals etc. were known as "Power users", not sure if this term is still in use. I think the same class system exists within the smartphone society.

At present I don't have the 5+GB necessary to install and I simply don't have the time or inclination to be messing around with iTunes back ups and deleting apps etc. Which bonehead thought this one up at Apple? Have they started employing Microsoft's redundant workforce or something?
