Cyanogen says it will not bundle Microsoft Apps into CyanogenMod ROMs


Cyanogen says that it will not be pre-installing Microsoft Apps onto it’s custom OS

cyanogenmod CM 10.1 - Cyanogen says it will not bundle Microsoft Apps into CyanogenMod ROMs

This is what it said in a not-so-professional statement posted at its blog.

Your nightlies will not see a sudden influx of Microsoft applications – you can put the pitchforks down. CyanogenMod has historically stayed neutral on your services of choice, whether you use Google, Amazon or Fdroid; we leave that decision to you and we have no intention of changing that.

So Cyanogen is feigning innocence, and insulting the intelligence of it’s users and blogs.  Now the mystery is about what Cyanogen meant to convey in the original statement remains to be seen. It clearly mentioned that, “Microsoft will enable us to bring new kinds of integrated services to mobile users in markets around the world. ”

If that doesn’t translate to APPs what did they sign the deal for?

This isn’t the first time Cyanogen is involved in something unethical, remember the OnePlus One-Micromax Yu Yureka fiasco? We certainly do.
