I think it does matter - after all diversity is good in a market such as this. It forces Company A to react to Company B's efforts, and vice versa. This helps drive the market forward.

What also matters is that the Symbian/Nokia/SE etc consortium is clearly a mobile phone manufacturer, with it's own ideas of customer support, as opposed to Microsoft which is building a small computer that happens to have a phone. Two different ethos, looking for the same people (but calling tem different things).

The next 12 months is going to be very interesting.

Oh, and ask yourself what other communities could have such a wide ranging discussion - that didn't descend into horrible flame bait...
