We’ll explain 15 reasons why Android is better than the iPhone with a new for 2016 Android vs iPhone comparison.
Google is kicking up the competition with Android Marshmallow that is thankfully rolling out to more devices and showing off Android N and a handful of interesting apps that will come later this year.

3 open source alternatives to AutoCAD
The trick for deciding whether a replacement piece of software, whether open or closed, is a good choice for you is to tease out exactly what your needs are. The situation is no different than discovering that the person who insists that they "need" Photoshop is just using it to draw a few geometric shapes and remove red eye from photos; what they really need is a graphics editing tool that can replace those specific functions.
