“The 3.3 kernel release will let you boot an Android userspace with no modifications, but not very good power management. The 3.4 kernel release will hopefully have the power management hooks that Android needs in it, along with a few other minor missing infrastructure pieces that didn’t make it into the 3.3 kernel release.”
Linux 3.3-rc2 is on Kernel.org so it should be just a few weeks before Android/Linux is back to the standard kernel or rather the standard kernel is back to Android/Linux. This will make it much easier for GNU/Linux and Android/Linux to coexist and much easier to bring Android/Linux to a huge mass of ARM/x86/amd64 hardware. It’s all good.
M$, FLOSS is way ahead of you. Is there a shortage of apps in GNU/Linux? The pool just grew by hundreds of thousands. If “it’s all about the apps” then FLOSS is winning. There may still be a few “legacy” apps outside the fold but they will soon hop on the bus.
