Will Google Fork Android from Linux?

Was doing my daily reading and ran across this article on itworld.com.  This article discusses how the drivers for Android have been removed from the Linux kernel's staging tree.  No mention of the word fork was stated in any posts, but many will wonder why do this move now?

Greg Kroah-Hartman posted a lengthy explanation stating one reason for removing the code is that no one was currently working on it. 

We will have to follow this story as it progresses further and actually see if a true fork ends up happening.

Post us some comments and let us know whether you think a fork would be good or bad?
