    I cannot understand that why people are so emotional and critiquing the new ROM created by One plus.
    Remember how Android sucked when it was launched & how stupid (and incomplete) all those droids were. But they improved and today it is one of the best Mobile OS.
    Even when Windows OS was relaunched it was grossly incomplete.
    Blackberry took forever to complete their BB10.
    Nokia abandoned their Meego and had to go out of market,
    Last I checked no one is interested in Jolla, Sailfish & Firefox. ( Here no one means very few.. Please)
    So my point is it takes time to build the OSes and ROM, features are added as the user base increases.
    Besides it is not mandatory to use Oxygen OS an optional one which is meant for early adopters and tech enthusiasts who are willing to devote time to debug and report issues.
    If you are not ready to be a beta tester for the rest of the group stay away and let other use so that it can become better.
    Choices are good.
    Please let me know your thoughts on it.

    Even though they warned us that it was going to be pure stock, when they hired the Paranoid Android team, i think expectations were raised...through no fault of OnePlus

    OnePlus said OxygenOS would be stock plus some minor customisations in the 1st version, which they did.

    It seems alot of people did not listen to OnePlus and thought OxygenOS would have as many customisations as CM11S.

    OnePlus built OxygenOS in 3 months and people still complain is was late. Cyanogen has been building for 5 months and still not released.

    OnePlus said it would be a near stock experience, and I actually like how fast it is. It lacks a few important features, but it's still an amazing first release. There will always be people who will hate though.

    OP said it would be a very stock experience which it sure appears to be. I haven't flashed Oxygen YET, though because of the lack of a few things, I think I'll wait for another build before trying it. I'm currently running nightlies of CM12 awaiting the OTA for 12S. We'll see.

    Personally, I don't understand the people who are super upset about Oxygen. If you don't like it, go back to CM and wait for an update to Oxygen, try a different ROM, or go get a Samsung or HTC if you want bloating features. Or even better, become a developer and build what you want to see.

    EDIT: I've since manually flashed the CM OS 12 update and I love it. OxyOS will have to be pretty damn special for me to flash it at this point.
