So, on Wikipedia, it says that there's gonna be a new Android OS called "M". Which, i have no idea why they could've named it "Mousse" or "Macaroon" (just kidding). Anyway, it doesn't say when it's out. So, i think it's in development or something.

Lollipop was called "L" until it was released. They keep the name secret until release.

Oh, well that's something. Most of their OSs represent "sweets or desserts" . Well, I guess we'll just have to wait(of course).

No, they keep the names secret until data miners or overzealous employees leak them...

Well now i hear that Android phones can be hacked. This is kinda concerning. But, i think it's for anyone who doesn't use a PIN or a password for their Android phone. But, it's kinda interesting how phones can be hacked these days.

I also still don't get the point in getting Windows on your tablet. I mean, it's great on a computer, but i'm not sure about that with a tablet. It's kinda weird, to me.

There's many different ways to get into an OS and bypass the password. Anything can be hacked. iOS has security flaws, Android has security flaws, Windows has security flaws.

There are many reasons. For my own experience, my amp lets me adjust settings from Windows. I have a cheap Windows 7 tablet that makes this relatively convenient as I only need to sit that on the amp. The amp barely has enough room and stability for my laptop, and I can just throw the tablet into the cavity while I'm transporting it. There's more practical solutions, like portable POS systems and an to use system while out and about (I can think of a few people who like to use Windows software out on the farm).

You have to remember that Windows tablets existed long before Android and iOS.

That's true. You can protect your device, but it might sometimes not work. I guess it all depends on how you use it or what's trying to hack into your phone. If you have some sort of "notify me when hacking" thing, then that might work.

Hmm, interesting. I think it's better to have a Windows tablet for multi use or if you own a business. Or if you just want to carry a light tablet and have a Windows OS with it.

That's very true. That goes back to about the HP PocketPC and those Windows XP tablets. But, there was this one device by Apple called the Newton that was before the PocketPC and the Windows tablet. But, i could be wrong. I'm not sure.

Well, I guess the best you can go with tablets for gaming and such are iOS and Android.

It's been a while, but I got to try out Android Lollipop. Which, now I have a tablet with Android Lollipop.

It's nice. Not too slow, not too buggy. Yeah, kinda different than Android 4.4 or 4.1. Button are WAY different.

Anyway, it looks like the new Android OS is "Marshmallow". Which, that's technically Android "M". It looks kinda similar to Android 5.0, but I'm not too sure. It isn't out yet anyway.

So, most of the Android OSs have one thing in common(between Android Ice Cream Sandwich & Android Lollipop), they have a back button and multi task button(and a home start button, of course). Yeah, kinda interesting if you think of it.

M is in developer preview, it won't hit the market for a whiiiiile. L is hardly a year old yet, and is still working on gaining widespread adoption. Also, M (AFAIK) isn't a full update, it will be 5.2 or something, instead of 6.0. I'm looking forward to it, but am content with L for now.

I would love to go full android, but as I like to do development for android, I still need a laptop to run Android Studio. As soon as I can do dev work from an android tablet, I'll ditch Windows.

It's going to be 6.0 and it should come out Septemberish! Probably towards the end.

They changed the design in 5.0. It runs generally well on a lot of hardware, too.

In terms of design, it looks very similar (at the moment). They've added a few features here and there to make it nicer than Lollipop, including a lot of new internal stuff to make it more efficient.

Well yeah... you can't change your system too radically or people won't know how to use it. And having them there a convenience.

It's going to be 6.0. The latest build has the version number internally too.

Fun fact, my phone keeps bugging me to upgrade to lollipop but I don't feel like deleting most of my apps to clear room for the download.

Feels a bit too soon for 6.0 considering how few have 5.0 or above at the moment...

I heard a while ago about some feature that allows you to pick the permissions you give to a specific app. Sounded promising. Heard anything about that?
