Crappy analysis of the role of Linux
As a mobile application platform, Linux is subject to the same balkanization problem that JavaFX is intended to address. And Linux is far more vulnerable than Java, because it runs native apps.
Android addresses balkanization in the same way as JavaFX - by having a single implementation of a Java platform ((albeit non-standard). The apps never see Linux.
Too bad, Sun. Google stole your ideas, and now you've probably missed the train.
But hardly surprising, as Sun have been consistently cack-handed and incompetent in their attempts to adapt Java to the consumer market.
