#Android is not open source.

Nothing new to that. It's like that for a long time and everyone knows it
Not having access to the GApps, the Google Play Services, the PlayStore and the security update for his new products is a VERY BIG problem for #Huawei
#Google has the full power in the Android ecosystem.

Yes. Nothing new to this. Don't be surprised.

Yes. This is a problem
Creating a new OS is a HUGE work. You don’t even imagine the effort behind that.

Push people to use another OS is a HUGE work and cost a lot of money.

Push developers to create apps to make apps for his OS is a HUGE work.
So yes, maybe #Huawei will create a new OS. But this is not a question of days or months, we are talking about years.
A lot of companies with a sh*t ton of money tried and failed. Create a successful OS is more complicated than you think and it’s not just a question of money
Current #Huawei users can chill, this is not the end of the world. You will not receive the security updates and the OS updates. This is a problem but not the end of the world for an average user.
#Huawei will survive to this ban. This ban is a direct consequence of a geopolitical move from the US BUT there is a technical foundation to it too.

#Huawei is a data abuser for years. I will not cry for them.
I wrote about it months ago. Technical proofs are not complicate to find.

And yes, if you follow me for a long time you probably know it already, #Huawei is not the only data abuser on Android
Erratum: Huawei will still have access to the security updates and OS updates for his new products.

As they lost their partnership with Google, they will not have the previews and so it will delay the updates
