I understand what you are saying. I too am a Linux engineer and have been for sometime. I realize that Android is built on Linux but did you know that Android is smart enough to kill apps on its own? Do you realize how may people come here complaining about issues and we find out that it was their task killer that was causing the issue. This is an OS based on Linux. That doesnt mean its exactly like linux. I am going to try to say this in a nice way, but if you search these forums you will find.plenty of reasons why you shouldn't use one. I know I know your a "linux expert" but did you build Android? Just wondering.
