    Linux as the kernel, it isn't an operating system, and Android has a different design for GPU driver support. I was using the term Linux as shorthand for GNU/Linux based systems, Android is not one of those, which is why Android GPU support doesn't translate to the GNU/Linux ecosystem. We cannot just reverse engineer a defined blob, to get GPU support, if we could... then we'd have had support a long time ago.

      android is just another linux distro. i don't know what gnu/linux means. your browser isn't gnu and it's most used app for most people, so it should be mozilla/linux or google/linux
