Interesting, eh.

One of my biggest bugbears with the OS is you cannot control it. Android has a mind of its own.

A team of Android programmers has raised a $7m (4.3m) investment to turn their hobby project into a rival to Google's phone operating system.

The CyanogenMod (CM) lets phone users swap the official version of Android for one that gives them more control over their phone or tablet.

It has reportedly been installed on over seven million Android devices. CyanogenMod (CM) Android Alternative Raises $7 Million Funding [bbc.co.uk]

This is a big one, I have tried CM on several devices and it's awesome, faster, lots of features, it deservers more attention. It's not universally compatible with all the devices but it rocks when you got it running.
