Cyanogen -> Samsung

My favorite ROM is CyanogenMod, originally produced by Steve Kondik (cyanogen) and now done by a whole team of developers. Steve just started at Samsung as a software engineer supposedly working on Android. And why not? He’s proven his stuff over the years. But how will it affect US? This could be either very good or very bad for Android and alternative ROMs depending on how Samsung handles things and how busy Steve is. He has always been a reasoned voice in the skirmishes between developers as well as among developers and carriers/ manufacturers. Time to change ROMs? (source)

Perhaps MIUI is a good candidate. It’s been around for quite a while, being done by a Chinese company, Xaomi. They’ve just announced a handset that will come with MIUI installed. (source)
