If Google removes root access, I'm leaving Android

Some news has popped up recently showing that Google is planning on removing access to /System and making it a lot harder to root in 4.4.3+. This would break some very popular tweaks like Xposed,Greenify... etc

I understand Google wants to increase Security but I'm noticing Android becoming more locked down slowly. Combine this with Samsungs KNOX and there bootloader locking and you'll see that Androids becoming less free.

Basically the future could be we have to buy a developer edition phone, or maybe I'm completely wrong and root will still available but be harder to do and it would only affect SU developer.

I paid for my phone and I should have full access to its filesystem. I didn't pick Android for its iOS and Windows Phone-like restrictions.
