I mean one that's commercially successful and widely used. Meego, Ubuntu and Sailfish failed in that regard and Tizen only achieved modest success.

Very slippery slope, this. Let’s just say something more open and transparent than something that supports the surveillance capitalism in current software and the like.

I am sorry to say that but the last two answers are, sadly, mutually exclusive.

Meego and Ubuntu Mobile no longer exist, but Sailfish and Tizen are still actively developed and have been 'alive' for a lot longer than the first two. I don't think you can say they've failed if they haven't even started.

Chrome OS Tablets can run Linux, making the dream of OTG GNU/linux a reality. The tablet in question runs an OP1 arm processor, you could easily build a smaller tablet with Chrome OS. I hope a 7", 7.9", or 8" chrome os tablet with stylus comes out.
Y como para cuando sale a la venta esa tablet?

My goal has always been the same; avoid pedantic, semantics laden arguments whilst on the Internet.

With that said, the "a true Linux" conversation will ultimately be dragged into esoteric knowledge around licensing, kernels, blobs or theory. Sadly, none of that ever really mattered to the layman.

Nor will any of the above. This will be all forgotten one day.
