Default [Q] original development and android dev

Hi,

I previously owned a galaxy s2, and then a galaxy s4, and on both of these devices forums the difference between the original dev and android dev sub forums was the on the original there were mainly(if not only) AOSP roms, and on the original there were only Touchwiz roms. however it seems on the nexus all of the roms are AOSP.

Can someone kindly explain what are the differences ?


Thanks

I had the same question when I came over to the Nexus 5. Apparently, the Original Android Development is based on AOSP. And Android Development is based on Original Android Development. I dont really get why they are separated either since they all work for all Nexus 5 devices. But it is what it is.
