Here Linux is used to mean any OS based on the Linux kernel, so
there is no reason to distinguish Android from other Linux based
Sorry, but no. You can argue as much as you want about "any OS based on
Linux" but for "normal people" Linux is GNOME/KDE/XFCE thing. Non-XWindow-
based system is clearly not Linux for them. It can be called "Linux-based
OS", "Linux-derived OS", but it's not "Linux". Just like XBox's OS is not
Windows - even if they use the same (or almost the same) kernel.
