Android at least redid the display server and removed the dependency on X, much as Wayland is trying to right now, except Wayland can really crack the dev doors open - and it won't be just Java/Dalvik but any language will be used for Nexus 7 or any other tablet. That's the future.

Then again it's tinkering, and it's always fun to tinker
Either way it's interesting seeing Canonical being so gung-ho about getting Ubuntu onto the Nexus 7. And of course it's brilliant that installing an alternative OS on this device is a viable option.
