Linux "If you consider NetApplications' data set, then Linux owns only about 1 percent of the desktop OS market and Windows has almost 92 percent. But if you consider all computing platforms, including mobile, than Windows has only 20 percent and Linux has 42 percent - and that would be in the form of Google's Android alone." No more or less legitimate than claiming Windows owns 92% of the market. It's all a matter of perspective.

At the source level not binaries and that's not what I was talking about at all. Doesn't change what I said and it doesn't make Android anymore Linux in the traditional sense. Seriously you try really hard to troll.
