It’s fitting for an OS that fragments into different pieces.
Right, because all other OS-es have across-the-board support.

While I understand what you're getting at, the situation is a bit different for Android. If you have an Android device that is a few months old when a new version of the OS is released, you will probably have to wait several months for an update (if it comes at all). It isn't exactly uncommon for Android devices to ship with a release of the OS that is older than what was available at the time of the devices' release either, and those devices are unlikely to receive an update.

That said, one of the goals of Android 4 is to separate a lot of the components from the core OS so that updates can be issued independent of the device developer. It doesn't solve the issue of fragmentation in the core OS, but it does reduce the fragmentation with many of the applications and libraries that ship with Android.

(Another that said: fragmentation is actually a benefit of Android. It has allowed Android to ship on many devices that it wouldn't have if tight control was exerted over the OS. This ranges from project boards for hobby electronics to consumer oriented game consoles.)

Not a fan really either I'd actually be very surprised if money wasn't involved. Makes me wonder if one day android will be called Pepsi OS or something

I really don't give a toss about the name, only the version number and whatever added functionality/improved performance it brings. Call it whatever you want Google.

Well, Lucky Charms does have more marketing potential than lemon bars or licorice.

Though I do hope that Google doesn't go down this path any further. Naming a product after cheap junk food seems to cheapen the platform in my mind. Then again, an Android phone does have the nutritional value of a Kit Kat bar so maybe I was attributing to much value to Android in the first place.

Okay, maybe it was worth it just for that advert.

Brilliant move by KitKat. Tacky move by Google. IMO that is.

I'm confused on several levels here.

It would not be Google selling the the product name, it would be Kit Kat, and you called them brilliant.

You acknowledge that Google is an ad company (ads pay for all the cool stuff so we users don't have to, which I love) then you insult them for it.
