Readers' Choice Awards 2014

Best Mobile Linux OS

Android is such a dominant force in the mobile world, we decided to allow Android variants to be counted separately. So although the underlying system on some of these are indeed Android, it seems far more informative this way.

  • Stock Android 37.1%

  • Sailfish OS 27.6%

  • CyanogenMod 20.2%

  • Other 3%

  • Ubuntu Phone 3%

  • Amazon Fire OS 1.5%

  • Ubuntu for Android 1.4%

  • Replicant .8%

  • Tizen .8%

It's time for another Readers' Choice issue of Linux Journal! The format last year was well received, so we've followed suit making your voices heard loud again. I couldn't help but add some commentary in a few places, but for the most part, we just reported results. Please enjoy this year's Readers' Choice Awards!

We'd like to make Readers' Choice Awards even better next year. Please send ideas for new categories and any comments or feedback via
