	Android uses the Linux kernel and IOS uses Mach with some BSD.
There aren't many options for a phone OS. There was a Ubuntu based phone OS
but it was only ported to a handful of phones and tablets and had almost no
app support, I think it's dead now. Open source Android is not a cleaned up
fork, it's the pristine version that the messed up^W^Wvendor enhanced
versions are created from. It is Google's code, released as open source.
