    Linux is a clone of Unix. They don't share any (kernel level) code, I don't believe.

    Linux is definitely an operating system
    Linux is definitely not an operating system. Linux is a kernel, with no userland tools to speak of. Most (but not all) of the userland tools are build around GNU tools.

    This topic could easily fill volumes (and I tend to go on too long) so I'll stop here.
    yeah i've never did understand what those were about.

    Linux is a kernel and developers build GUI from a language of their choice to run on top of it. Android is the same amount of "Linux" that WebOS is.

    The real question is what isn't Linux based, their are 50+ pc OSs, then there are about a dozen phone OSs. WebOS, Meamo, Meego, Moblin, Android, Bada.... thats all of the top of my head. All Linux kernals. Oh and both OS X and Linus are UNIX like, I think there was some confusion about it out there.

    Microsoft. Of all mobile operating systems that I know of out there, it's the only "real" one, as it's not based on someone else's kernel. Oh, and Symbian.

    iOS is not Linux based, but it is sort of unix-y. It's sort of OS X, which is sort of BSD on Mach. Or something like that.

    BeOS, too, not that anyone uses that anymore. Also, the old PalmOS wasn't Linux based. These days, though, no one bothers to reinvent the wheel; they just don't need to.

    It was a rhetorical question but I like your response. I have a nokia 5230, good old s60v5. Loved that phone, but got old fast, so I ended up buying a Pre 2 (2 weeks ago.) New symbian (anna and belle) is nice. That was the two OSs i was choosing between when I was buying a phone, belle vs webos. I love os underdogs, they have character compared to IOS and Android. sorry for the rant

    Sure, pity that nobody takes them seriously. Untill you are give them a try and say "damm, this little old system is so much better than I expected". I have a lot of respect (kind of desease, actually) for "rebel" operating systems, a rare breed nowadays. It's fun seeing how people only cares for the latest, while you can teach a lesson or two with your old system, that can do the same and more, only with more style

    A lost battle, sadly.
