Hopefully he will help redo their terrible skin over top of android. This move will make me consider future Samsung phones, but touch wiz has to go. I love me some Cyanogenmod.

I'm sure he's stoked! He's gonna be making some big bucks haha. Well deserved though in my opinion. Should be interesting how it'll work out. I'm sure he'll have to sign a contract saying he won't be affiliated with CM, and all the efforts he put into CM must go to Samsung. That's simply speculation though.

Ya know, it's amazing to me how much more intelligent everything is here than at xda. I check both places daily, and just about every thread about this is filled with a bunch of noobs absolutely convinced that this means either Samsung is going to lock the guy in a closet somewhere and CyanogenMod is now dead forever and will never be updated, or that Samsung will now sell phones shipped with CM7. Both ideas are completely ridiculous. But here everybody is just rationally pointing out that this likely means a good future for both Samsung and the consumer.
Thank you all, for being smart.

I believe he stated this will not affect his work on CM ..

Samsung can't have CyanogenMod unless he agreed to that which no way would he do that. Also Samsung won't ship with CyanogenMod installed but obviously his touches will be present in future products they ship. Might look into Samsung in the future!

That is truly amazing. Let it be an inspiration to other developers because you can make it big by taking tiny steps!

Congrats to Cyanogen!
