Android Beats Ubuntu and Linux

Linux has become omnipresent. It's presence is so deep that a user may not even know that he/she is in-fact using Linux, the kernel. The GNU combined operating systems do give Linux its identity.

However, in recent times some GNU/Linux based products have become overly popular. Some have even started stating that xyz is outshining Linux. Which I don't think is the case.

We looked for a comparison between 'mother' Linux and grandson Ubuntu and newly born Android. You can very clearly see that queries for Linux have come down recently as Ubuntu picked up.
