iLevon is apparently on Xiaomi’s MIUI development team and his account often gives insights into the development of MIUI. In a Weibo communiqué today, he gives some insight into the pressure of developing MIUI for Android:
Some friends you want to really want to seriously qualify beta feedback BUG it? Or just to satisfy their desire heart, over a dry addiction to show off the next. Niece of the development team is a very painstaking process, a lot of work until midnight every day siege lion, measured by a direct impact on the quality of the beta time! Apple hardware and software aspects are Apple’s own custom, Andrews is different, hardware uneven, adaptation difficulty is not iOS comparable! !
Are people seriously interested in helping to debug the beta version of MIUI 6? Or do you just want it so you can show off to other people? For the MIUI development team, this is a painstaking process, with programmers working until midnight every day, and this affects the length of the beta test process! Apple has custom hardware and software that works together. Android is different and must work on a variety of hardware and this is difficult to adapt! It’s not like iOS!
The more I think about it, the more it’s like the old days of Mac OS versus Windows.
Mac problems were usually easy to diagnose and fix because the hardware was unified.
Windows problems were always treacherous because every piece of hardware had — or required — different drivers.
So, iOS = Mac.
Android = Windows.
Forward into the past!
