But Android is Linux based already, what is the point? Linux is all keyboard power. I just don't get it.
Thats just it. Android is linux based not full linux. Im not linux or server expert but theres a ton more you can with coding and managing servers on an actual build of linux as opposed to android. And its actually a desktop os unlike android which is purely mobile at the time being.
Linux is not about keyboard power. How a user handles a keyboard can apply to any OS, there are some great Windows keyboard users.
Linux isn't just a desktop OS, you can also get full Linux on embedded systems.
The point is that Linux is so customizable, that Android uses it for Java applications, whereas Vivaldi focuses on KDE: a completely different user interface from android with different tweaks, theming, and applications. There is a lot of cool stuff that KDE has and Android doesn't. A lot of good applications I use on my laptop that I would love to have mobile versions of. A lot of applications won't have to be completely re-written this way.
Even if your OS is Linux, that doesn't imply you will be writing code or managing servers either. OS's like Linux Mint and Ubuntu are very touch and mouse friendly for everyone.
Competition is great in the mobile marketplace. Why only have two major players? I'd much prefer this tablet than an android or ipad.
