Google Glass to get KitKat; monthly updates are a thing of the past?

Google Glass to get KitKat; monthly updates are a thing of the past?
The XE14 update for Google Glass, originally scheduled to be released last month, has been delayed. Glass Guide Teresa Zazenski spread the word in the forum made just for Glass Explorers. Zazenski said that the team did not want to send out an update that "isn’t ready for primetime yet." Google's Sarah Price, who is the community advocate for Glass, also hinted that the days of monthly updates are over. Moving away from a monthly schedule allows the team to focus on larger changes and won't force an update to be released until it is perfectly ready to be sent out.

Also of interest to Google Glass Explorers is word that an update is coming that will take the connected specs from Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich, to Android 4.4 KitKat. Zazenski says that the move to Android 4.4 will make the Glass experience smoother and better. Explorers seem to be excited by the prospect of the update to the next Android build.

Depends on how you look at it, the first hardware rev. couldn't go past 4.3 due to OMAP.

Which brands give good support in Indonesia? Buy that. For my country I know that brands to avoid but could be awesome brands in other countries.

I'm going to sound like a noob, but I was unaware that Glass had software named similar to Andorid. Does it run a custom version of Android?
