... Yes, I think your observation is right.

But where has the general Spirit gone? Is this indicating that partially Open source has won? Or cheap devices built in China are the most important? Or is it lack of spare time? Or are we just watching how iAndroid is dominating the world?

What would we need to get New Spirit into our Community?
