PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Originally stemming from MeeGo, birthed under Nokia's watch, Sailfish has since gone its own way and is maturing into a mobile platform getting ready for launch. This week at the Mobile World Congress, we tracked down Jolla and Mosconi again, getting the opportunity in the process to check out a live Sailfish demo. We check out how notifications work, look at the Sailfish take on a status bar, and get to see the media player with all its gesture support." By far the most unique and interesting of the alternative mobile platforms. Very fancy.

It's a composite distro. It uses Mer (https://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Main_Page) and parts of Nemo (https://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Nemo) together with Sailfish specific parts. It's fine to call it an operating system and it is a Linux distro in more senses than Android.
