Linux and Android, Together at Last

Posted March 20, 2012 by kennyp in Apps

Android and Linux fanboys unite! After years of waiting and months of heavy speculation, the world’s favorite platforms for nerds are finally coming together in a meaningful and useful way.

The release of version 3.3 of the Linux kernel – that is, the source code that powers the very core of Linux-based operating systems – merges traditional Linux code with that of Google’s Android operating system, giving users the ability to boot Android on any Linux-based device or even to run Android apps using only the stock Linux kernel.

This latest version includes not only the first true merger of the two operating systems but also extra features like an improved file system, extended memory management, enhanced networking capabilities and, most importantly, more security features. As if those features weren’t enough, the promised release of Linux kernel 3.4, expected in only a few short months, will address improvements to power management, peripheral compatibility and more.

Non-developers will need to wait a week or two until the first user-friendly releases of Linux 3.3 are made available for installation on common devices; in the meantime, developers can get compiling immediately!
