The European Union plans to enforce a standard plug USB-C for phones and laptops.
The main point is reducing the garbage. It is true that we end up having many chargers and even now I am forced to use USB-C, USB-A and mini USB.
The other point of view is "what about innovation", once you standardize technologies, engineers are not so keen to keep innovating.
But look at the power plug, there are a few global standards. This is a big issue because things bought in the USA might not work in EU and vice versa.
But inside USA and Europe, people get used to this technology and are not complaining that power plugs are not innovative enough.
You must take the criticism into an account, but if the value is greater than the implication, this is a right indicator you are on the right way.
