Android is a Linux distro (though not GNU). Android/Linux has the largest number of any OS for 'personal' computers (billions).

On phones (which is the subject of this article) it is Windows that has moved from 42% of US market share to "rounding error in the stats" and will next go to "irrelevance".

Linux also runs more servers (by number, not cost) than any other OS.

It is likely that there are more Linux embedded commodity systems than any other single OS.
