This is called "Linux kicking Microsoft's butt."

Maybe. But I think it's fairer to say that "this is called "Google kicking Microsoft's butt".

Personally, I'd like to see other OSs challenging this - competition drive innovation after all, and especially given how Google is becoming more and more evil, with the capacity to be far worse than Microsoft ever were.

Exactly what those OSs are... well, I'd like to see something come of Sailfish, and Samsung's Tizen experiment, or even a Google free AOSP. But for all the Linux lovers out there who are currently basking in the fact that Android is on the rampage in the markets, just keep in mind who got it there, what they have become and how much worse they can get - and take care not to become the thing you hate.
