The competition to gain as much popularity as possible between tech giants around the world is fierce and as in every war, there are no rules: all you have to do is stay alive and crack your enemy`s skull, to put it in a rather pictorial way. Well, if not as such an intensity, it is not an exaggeration to say that Microsoft and Cyanogen team up versus Google, in a quest run by Cyanogen to increase its dominance over Google`s Android.
So Microsoft and Cyanogen team up versus Google by making an agreement which implicates that some of the most popular apps by Microsoft will be already there when you buy a gadget which is operated by Cyanogen Operating System. CyanogenMod has not been terminated, it is still being developed and it represents a different individual than the Cyanogen Operating System.
Skype, OneDrive, Outlook, Bing services, OneNote and Office will come as pre installed on the devices whose systems are operated through Cyanogen. To put it in other terms, what Cyanogen does looks like depriving Google of one of its most reliable products, the Android, and offering it to one of Google`s rivals, the old wolf Microsoft.
There have been discussions regarding a partnership between Microsoft and Cyanogen recently, on the occasion of the funding of Cyanogen. It is true that those discussions were not confirmed by an official approach to the matter, but rathere remained as hot topics for the tech enthusiasts or even for the analysts and experts, that regarded such a move as one not to be ignored.
In the end, Cyanogen was not funded by the American tech giant but, somehow, it appears that all the debates on the world wide web were not just useless gossip and chatter. It turned out that indeed Microsoft and Cyanogen had something prepared and that thing is the new partnership regarding the Microsoft app pre installed bundle.
Cyanogen`s rise is a fine example of how a company can grow successfully. In the beginning, Cyanogen only represented an ordinary Android ROM. In the present, it is a company continuously rising and looking for partners ready to launch their smartphones and tablets with a pre installed Cyanogen Operating System.
Kirt McMaster, who is in the position of chief executive officer at Cyanogen has made its opinion public on Google`s policy of the tech giant`s own apps placement. He stated that there are rigorous regulations that phone makers have to respect when it comes to placing Google apps on the screens.
