Not really any different than any other operating system when they update. Windows updates and some apps no longer work. Firefox updates and some add-ons no longer work. Update the forum software and suddenly some add-ons etc don't work. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Well, yes and no. Essentially, they turned off the Android Debug Bridge. This will break things like alternative launchers (which prevent Amazon from showing you ads on the home screen) and prevent users from changing certain settings that aren't changeable via the regular menus. For example, I used ADB to adjust the screensaver settings to behave very differently from the available options. For a lot of users, this represents a big change in functionality.
