Google is making waves with its Android OS, the Linux-based operating system that is aimed at unifying mobile phone usage independent of carriers or brands. We like the idea quite a bit, but the Linux group itself doesn’t, and is making a competitor. As if we don’t have enough flavors of Linux as is.
We don’t see the new yet-unnamed version of Linux really hurting Android, as there’s no way they’ll have Google’s marketing and development dollars. That being said, many Android apps might run on the new OS, and we’re all about alternatives, so in all we love the idea. We hope it doesn’t suck.
