IMHO, the Linux monoculture prevents sometimes from adressing specific problem areas (at least it slows down things enough to miss the target).
Linux is not yet totally ubiquitous - the most recent example is the Android "port" (which involved a lot of domain specific hacks).
I don't see how Linux monoculture prevented anything. Quite the opposite, Google was able to leverage Linux when creating Android. If anything, Android proves Linux is not a monoculture.
