Default Android L

So announcement of android L has been released for dev's on 26 june (today) according to some websites. I looked at some beta screenshots and everything has changed from keyboard to icons. Whilst im looking forward to this new update ( rumors are this fall) will android users be able to adapt to the vast changes in UI or will they want google to go back to the original feel rather than a minimal aproach? Lastly i hope we get an update for it lol

Might just be me but I feel the whole minimal flat thing is pretty boring. Sure, under the hood it looks great, but visually, hmm, I might be ashamed to show people my droid :/ But we'll see, and I'm hopeful

Exactly! I mean i love minimal but wouldnt it destroy android? I feel as if customizations will be lower than before. I feel as though android should stick with the 4.0.4 feel. Even when kitkat some ppl werent happy because of the color change. Minor things is what makes the biggest impacts. Still it would b nice for a ui change

Yh knox maybe a problem. A big one.
