> There's like, OMG! a billion Android devices out there right now, not including all the other embedded linux devices out there, just ticking away nice and reliably, they just work.

And you might note, that these Android devices got rid of most of that UNIX stuff you're talking about. X11 - gone, UNIX service infrastructure - gone, shell-based design - gone, etc.
