I take it none of you use either Mint or G+. Oy. More often than not, the reason [Mint] users bitch about a particular default choice is that (a) it's being changed for no reason, and (b) no one asked the users if they wanted it changed. Google is using open source to power Android far past iphone/iOS sales, and you think they're going to burn that bridge? Yeah, that makes sense (if you're Oracle).
