Removal or change of the Android/Google board

Post by DarkerJ »

Looking through the forum, I see that the Android/Google OS board hasn't been posted in for over 4 months, and contains a grand total of 12 topics spanning 3 years.

Since people aren't using it, I think it should either be deleted, and it's topics condensed to the Other OSes board, or have it turned into a general mobile OS board, one that would cover other ones such as Kai or PureOS on the upcoming Librem 5 phone.

We did create it because people requested a separate Android board... But we'll take your suggestion under advisement.

Is Harmony OS suitable for the board?

That will go in the Other OSes section.

To be fair, this also applies to the iOS section.

Google is putting a decent amount of effort into fuchsia os. Would that fit on that board as it is the Google replacement for Android?

We are not going to make any forum changes at this time. If and when interest picks up about a certain section we'll look into it.

I think most of the operating system forum sections are pretty organized for now, with their proper categories, so I doubt there would be any need for changes to those forums. But yeah, many different OSes come out all the time, so who knows?
