"Huang’s non-authorized version has not been submitted to Google for integration into the wider Android open source effort, which has raised concern that it could cause fragmentation." Whoever said this is totally misleading. Chih-wei has tried very hard to summit any of our changes to the ASOP and many of them have been accepted by the ASOP.

With open source, it is likely for a 1 company (Intel) to make a large contribution to an effort and another company (AMD) to take advantage of their work. That's the nature of the beast. It sort of sounds like Intel is whining...

Woo ya, talking about taking advantage of others work, one of the intel guy took a patch from android-x86 and submit to ASOP under his name, what about that ?

Android OS, very popular in China now. Many projects start to choose android as the first option OS. I focus on embedded linux, as I know, the android is based on linux kernel, so i wonder why it is better than linux. If you want to use android, you must be familiar with Java language. It is boring for me, only have interest on C,so i still use linux to develop new embedded projects. Of course, not phone and tablet.

Well, what would be Google’s official statement? I think as a comment mentions, the Chrome OS is the one for PC’s. Netbooks actually. But… haven’t hear much about it. I remember it was making a big buzz about a year a go but looks like Android is keeping Google engineers busy. And… is fragmentation bad? Linux got all fragmented didn’t it? I think is a matter of time to hear about a fragmentation from Android, new distro’s and the like. Anyway, looks like someone in the group actually says this fragmentation isn’t happening as Huang’s intentions as they have submitted changes to the ASOP group and some have been accepted. Interesting, we’ll soon have notebooks with Icecream on top.

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.

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.

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.
