    This would be huge! We'd be the only desktop that can do this seemlessly.
    I don't remember how many times I've wanted to run some android app in GS, now if GS only supported widgets so I could have a place to run them (perhaps in OVERVIEW?).

    Libhybris isn't meant for Android app compatibility for Linux desktops. Instead it lets you use Android drivers compiled for use with Bionic (Android's C library) to be used on systems using the glibc C library (which is what Linux desktops use as a C language implementation). This will let Linux distributions make use of Android GPU drivers made by the GPU manufactors themselves.

    ^This, the focus has mostly been on GPU drivers so far, but it does allow for a wider array of device dvr types longer-term.
