Google gave Linux exactly what is needed: some coherent desktop experience.


and as Linux user, i say "they can keep it, i'll be just as happy without it".
- my software runs on any other linux, it doesn't on android
- i can't use android apps on my desktop
where the fsck do you see any coherence here? all i can see is one company pushing its own stack and not even caring about others

btw, am i the only one that got a feeling like interviewer didn't ask any serious question? whole thing reads like questions were asked by google to promote google.
