    Default Linux for android

    Hello, Not only am I new to Android, I am also new to rooting. A friend told me about rooting my Android and running a Linux os on it. Can this be done, and if so, what flavor of Linux is recommended?

    Also, if not using Linux, how do I decide what root to go with?

    Thanx to anyone that can help me into the right direction

    I think android already is linux O.o or its just similar to linux with it being open source and easy to fiddle around with.
