Your weekly reminder that Linux is just a fucking kernel and what you call "Linux Desktop" never existed...
You can't define whole platforms and ecosystems and operating systems just by the kernel they are using.
Same reason why it doesn't matter a bit if android, really pixelos, is running on top of the linux kernel.
This is prompted by an article about "The linux desktop is in trouble" that echo chambers Torvald's fragmentation comments, cause of course w/e Linus says is unquestionable truth, despite half the time being ignorant comments with no-base in reality outside of his domain and expertise.
Anyhow, the article ended up calling for "standardised desktop catered to everyone" like that doesn't exists already.
The author is completely ignorant about what makes an OS and a platform.
The term "LINUX SYSTEM" is as stupid as "UNIX", seriously, thankfully on a less insane scale... at least its the same kernel unlike unix, but why on earth would anything on the system be the same.
Heck, even the kernel can be completely different when you compare the RHEL/Debian stable kernels, the kernels of android devices, fork targeting IoT and embedded systems. And let me tell you about my brand new router that runs on top of 2.6...
