Call me crazy, but 10 years back it was "Linux will rule the world in 10 years!" and now everyone says "Android" when Android is actually Linux.

Words have power, and behold: Linux is on top, as the endless multitude of prophets hath spake. And now it's about "which mobile distro?" when it used to not matter which Linux it was so long as it was Linux.
