Obviously Android's gonna win but its more like Google's controlling everything and that's what bugs me.

Its Ubuntu Phone for me

WebOS

HP quite way too soon. Th OS has great potential and has contributed features to some of the most advanced phones. Hopefully someone will revive this OS and compete with Android.

Why is CyanogenMod separate from Android?

Wow, I see a lot of votes for Android so far. No love for CyanogenMod? I know there are a couple so far, but I would think more people on here would be running CM. My vote is for GSIII with CM.

I have high hopes for Ubuntu Touch and FirefoxOS. But as with FirefoxOS phones are available and Ubuntu not (AFAIK), my vote goes to them.
+1

I was an early adopter of Android (1.x something) and way ahead of the curve when everyone else was still yoddling about iPhones and Blackberry's. Had high hopes for Android but then the Goog lost it's way and became evil. So I never upgraded. I doubt I'll ever get another "smart" phone, because with the Snowden disclosures, you'd have to be pretty dumb to use one.

I do think FirefoxOS shows much promise, however, and hence gets my vote as a true FOSS alternative to Android.

+1 on WebOS being prematurely killed before it's time. Palm developed a great OS and then blew it by coupling it with a lame device. HP doesn't know it's head from it's *** these days, has been struggling with extremely piss poor "leadership" & financial woes, so it's no wonder WebOS been lost in the shuffle.
