    So now I can run Android applications on the desktop?

    Too bad everything released for Android is shit.
    Almost all Android apps are proprietary adware-infested crashprone piece of shit that probably includes spyware.
    Maybe not the fault of Android per se, I guess its the same for iOS and Windows Phone.

    I was just watching the Jupiter Broadcasting video on XBMC yesterday that had the http://www.android-x86.org/ Ice Cream Sandwich running on a laptop. They didn't have any video decoding, 3D acceleration, or wireless working yet, but Android features on the desktop does look very interesting. I really hope Android features like Netflix and other useful apps make it to Linux.
