Many folks consider that both of these as operating systems. Linux OS is for Desktop & Server while Android OS is for Mobiles. Is that completely correct?
Linux OS, precisely speaking Linux kernel is the most popular OS while Android is a framework built on top of Linux kernel. So every Android device is running Linux kernel as well but every Linux device doesn’t have Android. We can think of Linux kernel as foundation on which Android is built. Also Android isn’t limited to Mobiles only. Android runs on other devices such as TV, Camera, Watch and even Cars!
