Android is Linux, aside from the fact it isn't...
This is the part I hate. I thought it would be an open platform, but it's locked, possibly even tighter than IPhone.
For Wildfire S I own, I need to buy some sort of hardware unlocker to get it to work with unlocked Linux. Other than that you're tied to Google services everywhere. There are only few actions you can do without the phone pinging back to Google.
