    ****MIGHT NOT BE IN RIGHT PLACE, PLEASE MOVE IF SO****

    Well as the title reads, I think we are in the middle of a throwdown. Apple has Saurik on their sh*tlist, as many of you know. Getting rid of Cydia and the Cydia store would make them very pleased. Saurik, is gearing up for this toe-to-toe battle. Essentially, one man has come to be the face of the competition. Now, although Icy isn't anything special now, will Saurik be in another run for it? Will Apple? Maybe RipDev is gearing up for something as well. It seems we have, in more or less terms, a power vacuum. With Apple's "basic power" now gone with the once thought "unjealbrakable" iPod Touch 2g, people are trying to fill that void: Cydia, Icy. You may say that Saurik will prevail and Icy won't be anything to worry, but won't it? Cydia was thought just a minor setback and now look at it, 1v1 battle with Apple. Have we seen the end of the war? OR just the beginning?

    War..? o..o
    Damn people Apple won? If it WAS a war..?

    In my opinion, the only reason to jailbreak would be to theme. But that's not really I want to trade for less space, some bugs if any, a bit slower. taking up CPU, etc.
    So that's why I didn't personally jailbreak.

    But all in all, Apple is doing a fantastic job and really now? AppStore > Cydia, Installer, Ict, etc etc.

    It is bigger now, yes, but will it be an all out war in the future? Where they are three "big dogs" of applications? Maybe Icy will come up with their own way of doing things. You never know.

    I think the OP is just trying to start a controversy, there is no "war", no "throwdown" that I know of.

    Early on it was only Installer which was why everyone jailbroke.
