The technology trends so far have taught us one thing, you either choose more features and open platform, but with a lot of malware threats or choose a closed tightly controlled platform that does very few things, but does those things very well and of course that does not have any malware threats (almost). This is true, be it the olden days of Windows v/s Mac or the now Android v/s iOS. The choice is open and no love is lost which ever one you choose!
