Unofficial CM10 Port for the Samsung Galaxy S Plus
Not too long ago, we brought you the wonderful news that the original Samsung Galaxy S variants got official CM10. Unfortunately, there were a few versions that were left out, including the Samsung Galaxy S Plus I9001.
The first push to get AOSP Jelly Bean of any kind began with this thread which is currently maintained by XDA Forum Member demon434. It helped give the community a place to troubleshoot issues and test preliminary builds. Now, XDA Senior Member Doomsday94 has released an unofficial preview build of CyanogenMod 10.
The build is a little shaky, hence why it is called a preview. There are a number of things working, to include:

USB mass storage
HW accelerated gui
HW accelerated video

As of late, Microsoft has been making a subtle but widespread play into the Android ecosystem, with small apps like Bing Torque being the foreshadowing of the larger ones to come, and as it stands, Skype and the three popular office apps - Powerpoint, Excel and Word - are thriving on the Play Store following their public release earlier this year, prior to which the Office suite remained in beta. Having its top apps on Android was just a stepping stone...
