Re: different

Well, it"s a variant of Android. So your question is like "How is Windows 10 different from Windows", or "How is Ubuntu different from Linux". Doesn't make much sense.

Not Exactly..

I was a bit confused. Thanks for the link, it clarified a lot. Happy
What I actually meant was, if its an OS, why is there a need for it to be merged with Android platform. It should be independent right?
Like say for example, Windows Black Edition OS (modified) cannot be merged with the actual Windows OS and used at once on a single drive.
