SailorF54, porting to Android was not controversial, everyone knew it was the right thing to do, but the work fell on a few skilled stalwart individuals. Bdbcat, Sean, Pavel and perhaps some others.
O supports many platforms, including Android. That's a lot of work, all volunteered, and it all takes time, patience and dedication.
