They have a pretty standard, but minimal, base system, where
their android stuff runs on top of it.
Have you actually tried to check facts before answering? Bionic is
pretty darn stripped libc and their utilites don't even try to pretent they
support POSIX. It's kind of Unix-like environment, but it's not Unix at
all. And "Adroid stuff" is not really tied to Linux - they can switch to
other kernel if it and when it'll be feasible.
The fact that GNU/Linux was called just Linux for years now returns to
bite you: most people say "Linux" and assume it's kind of GNU/Linux where
you can use "normal Linux programs" - and Android is quite different from
