Android is a huge market for the "virus industry" just like Windows, where desktop Linux hobbyists are not. While the kernel is the same, that's where much of the similarity ends. Libc, userland, abi, api, have little in common. Google see Linux as a mere stepping stone and are developing their own OS.ď

I feel that with a desktop computer running a Linux distro., there's the Linux kernel that carries out the tasks, but there's another "layer" on top of that which interacts with the User. I would think of that mostly as the so called Desktop Environment, such as KDE, Gnome, etc. I've been involved in developing apps. for Android, and for the most part I would think of Android itself as more or less the equivalent of the Desktop Environment, built on top of the Linux kernel. In that sense, when you say that Google is developing it's OS, do you actually mean that they wish to replace the kernel? Or are you just using "OS" the way some people do when they talk about a "Desktop OS", in which they include the kernel and the Desktop Environment which interacts with the User?

I understand that's the case.
