[News] [Linux] Linux Has Advantage in the Mobile OS World

How Linux morphed from a server to a mobile OS

,----[ Quote ]
| When evaluating Linux as a possible OS candidate, it is important to
| remember that the Linux "model" for mobile devices is horizontal. That
| is, Linux is not presented as a vertically integrated top to bottom
| solution for a mobile device supplied by one vendor.
| 
| It's a sharp contrast to the other OS suppliers such as Microsoft
| with Windows Mobile, Symbian and PalmSource. These suppliers
| support a highly integrated software stack, incorporating not
| only an OS but also extensive middleware and application layer
| pieces. Arguably the price for such integration is lack of
| flexibility and loss of control.
