The installed base of advanced operating systems (OS) is a KPI of the health of the OS's ecosystem. It signifies the total addressable market for developers: a key criterion of a developer's decision making when deciding which OS to develop native applications for. Developer and application ecosystems are obviously a major factor in creating market momentum for an OS and ultimately the virtuous cycle crucial for success. Similarly, squeezed Android OEMs may also be looking for a viable second OS to add to their product portfolio.
