    You are now confusing now "free software is available" with "does this software fit my specific use case."

    Because it fits: Huawei recently built the first smartphone ever without any components made in America. Obviously they still want to run Android on it, but in case the access to this ecosystem gets cancelled as well they've got their own replacement OS called Harmony already in the works...
