"Switch is mostly custom kernel. They used bits of Android"We already know from studying recent dumps of the Switch eMMC and RAM that Nintendo basically rewrote their 3DS Kernel for the Switch, but also uses alot of Android libraries and such inside their OS to manage rendering and drivers, etc. -- And it seems originally big 'N' was talking to Cyanogen to produce their OS, but the CEO turned them down and say to them to 'Stick it'
Back when the Switch was known as the Nintendo NX there were rumours which suggested that the console would make use of Google's Android operating system, and according to former Cyanogen CEO Kirt McMaster, the Japanese giant actually went as far as to approach Cyanogen regarding its OS.
So what do you think, would the Switch had been a different type of system if Cyanogen had joined forces with Nintendo?
