If you want to make it big amongst your consumers you need to listen to your community. I have always been surprised as to why would HTC power its mobiles with the open sourced Android operating system and yet prevent users from making changes in the software itself. The sense UI, etc, which often makes going hardcore of your smartphone a bit difficult.
