So Android Isn’t Very Linuxy...

    Some hackers have been delving into the guts of Android, and they are less
    than impressed with what they see.

    Yes, you can build an indigestible, inflexible, monolithic hash of a system
    on top of a Linux kernel. But I’m not worried. Because as long as Google
    doesn’t try to pull a Tivo, those who want to replace their system with
    something better will be able to.

    It doesn't have to be flexible - it only needs to do what Google wants it to do.

    so long as it is secure and reliable and open I don't care that Google did an inflexible implementation.
