And as far as your experience with people not identifying with a PC manufacturer I think you're wrong. Most people I know of swear by specific brands of PCs or know of certain brands that they won't go near.
I also believe you're wrong on your last point. Most of the customers I speak to on a daily basis don't even realize the operating system is provided by google. I regularly have to explain that their google account and operating system are tied together as closely as they are. And most of the complaints I see on articles and forums about delayed updates are specifically upset at the manufacturer for falling through, often threatening to buy a different brand of phone due to how the upgrades are handled.
Overall, all we have here is anecdotal evidence so I suppose we'll just have to agree to disagree.
