Android makes an excellent example of how the Linux kernel is versatile
enough to drive application specific solutions tailored to a specific use
case. The platform's success on mobile hardware doesn't make it well
suited to the desktop. Fedora makes an excellent admin or development
workstation, but that doesn't mean it is suited for use in point of sale
systems or embedded Linux toasters. I think its great that products are
becoming more tailored for the way we use them, but I'm not about to jump
on this ridiculous "the desktop is dead" bandwagon that's become popular
