    Could be argued either way, some would say yes some would say no and both would be correct. It depends on how you define Linux. Having looked at all the arguments both for and against it being, then I would say it was similar, but not the same, like for example an Neanderthal is similar to a Homo Sapien, but not completely the same thing. So the answer is yes and no or no and yes

    Eddie Paul, use your fingers - Google up "android linux", read the first 3 or 4 entries you see, and come back and tell us what answers you have learned.

    Cheers
