Why not partner instead with Ubuntu? They already have most of the drivers for Intel-based PCs, and you could produce a dual-boot or switch-desktop solution that would allow the end user to chose their favority interface. Otherwise, there will be a lot of Windows XP computers that will be thrown away. Most will be in the garbage, not recycled, if MicroSoft really discontinues support for their most popular release ever, and we do not have an Android solution ready for installation.

Android replacing Ubuntu Linux could be very interesting turn for PC OSs. The fragmentation of open-source development because of 5-10 options for language, libraries, fragments these projects quickly. Nobody wanting to merge them. These alternate projects start with some itch and do bring new ideas. But sadly many of these projects die slow death and dissapear because of lack of developers/interest. Surviving projects are not able to merge the freshness these ones brought, because of differences in language/library/design choices etc. Less is more !!! The strength of Android/x86 would be common language platform Java and big pool of Java libraries, including GUI, sound etc. Slowly but surely this port will appear as leader of PC OS pack.

" “We could definitely get our drivers to go and do that, but it’s not our focus,” he said. " Something is fishy here. This does not sound like Intel.

Guys, I'm writing a follow up to this. It's taking me a while because Intel won't comment and Google hasn't replied yet. I'm working on it. Want to bring you the complete story.

Android has so much constraints compared to Ubuntu. For everyday desktop PC, Android could be a good option. For high performance computing, any kind of servers or cloud based computing, Ubuntu, in general Linux, will be a better option.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
