*I would like to note that English is not my native language and understanding about Android system structure is little.
My question: is it possible to make Android to run without Google apps (Play Services and account manager etc.), and make it more alike Linux (different package system?). AFAIK, Android is using modified Linux kernel and is emulated by Java(?). I would like to keep some of applications from Android and take power from regular Linux distribution without feeling that I am being monitored all the time.
