Google is working on a successor to Android

For more than two years, a small and stealthy group of engineers within Google has been working on software that they hope will eventually replace Android, the world’s dominant mobile operating system.

As the team grows, it will have to overcome some fierce internal debate about how the software will work.

Interesting. I think this is necessary. Bored of Android and iOS. We need more variety.

The article states "Moving from Linux, though, could have upsides for Google. Android’s use of the technology, which is owned by Oracle Corp..."
This is incorrect, Oracle owns Java, Linux is freeware originally developed by Linus Thorwalds. Although Android's core is Linux, many of it's features are based on Java.
