But a different brand with

But a different brand with identical code (or slightly better code) won't win, that's my I'm trying to say. It must be radically superior in order to hit critical mass. That's the only way a new brand can overtake an older succesful one.

We've basically seen this within businesses as well, where one business tried copying an original idea and had far more liquidity at their disposal to support the copy than the business that came up with the original idea and yet still failed. History is rife with these examples.

Brandname is THAT significant. Even superior backing of a copy won't guarantee victory. Only a far superior idea has a slight chance of succeeding.
