Take a second and think about end-user Linux. Now guess: Which is the most popular of all?

If you're a long time Linux user, chances are you guessed Ubuntu, Mint, Debian, or Fedora.

You'd be wrong.

The most popular end-user Linux, without any question, is Android. In 2014, Gartner estimates that there will be a billion Android tablets and smartphones sold in that year. Gartner predicts that more Android units alone will ship than all Apple and Microsoft powered devices combined..

Yes, Android is Linux. It was always Linux. There were differences at one time, but Android officially rejoined the Linux family in March 2012.

OK, so what do you think is the second most popular Linux?
