The Lego system of apps and os is somthing I hope becomes more used in
months to come. Sadly the bulk of the sheeple cry for spoon feeding. Take
a look at the uproar over skins of late. An old idea of customizing your

It seems the more things move to become about parts and building the ore
the mass mindset is about a controled pre built experience.
