About time Orange!
Just saw that AT&T in the states was rolling out an update a few days ago, I wonder what the connection is…
Maybe EE were just embarrassed about being so late?
Anyway Samsung were so lucky… as I had just made a promise to myself that I would be going Nexus 5, as the carriers were so slow with updates.
So to recap I have had 2 updates one to 4.04 and another to 4.1.2 in the 13 months I have had the phone.
They were pushing things this time but… OK.
The plan I have been following is:
Go with a flagship phone from a successful company, who updates.

- Big hi-resolution screen with LTE.
- Removable battery
- Upgradeable storage

How to know if noatime or relatime is default mount option in kernel?
This should list all the options a filesystem was mounted with:
Ubuntu looks to default to relatime :-)

What it means to the rest of us
I think the Dell deal is just the beginning of the Windows 8 fallout. There are several other, bigger, shoes waiting to drop.
What will the other major PC licensees do? If you’re working at a company like HP or Acer, everything about this situation feels ugly. Your faith in Windows has been broken, you’re losing share to Lenovo, and now Microsoft is subsidizing one of your biggest competitors. I’d be tempted to fly out to Redmond and demand my own handout. And I’d also be willing to look at more radical options. There are several possibilities:
