Ubuntu's upcoming Android execution environment that'll let you run Android apps isn't just interesting, it's smart, given the buzz over Android on netbooks—stick with Ubuntu and you can run Android apps alongside real Linux programs. [Ars]
Seriously. I have little use for any of the Android apps I use on my desktop. About as much as I need a full-fledged GIMP on my phone. After the recent Moblin tour, I'm really more interested in that for a netbook (which I never thought I'd say) than I am in running Android apps on Ubuntu.
Don't get me wrong. It's really cool and all. I just need to hear a good application of this concept.
