LXer: Android to take Linux mainstream

Published at LXer:

For an OS to wrestle market share from Microsoft's Windows, it will need two things: the OS-maker's support and low licensing fees. This rings true even on the netbook front--a relatively new PC segment, and even for Microsoft. Recently, the Android OS backed by Google was unofficially ported to an Asus Eee PC netbook, and according to online reports, the Taiwanese manufacturer has set up a team to develop a netbook running on the Linux-based OS.
