Recently I was starting to wonder about a few things. I kept looking at my Nexus tablet thinking, dang, this thing is nice - but the ergonomics behind it don't really make it an all-day all-purpose device, but moreso just a supplement device to my desktop and laptop. That got me wondering if I could use it full time, so I downloaded Android 4.3 for x86 and am currently tinkering with it in a VM. In a short while I'm going to install it to a spare laptop I have and see how long I can last.
Several thoughts come to mind. First off, Exchange support in Linux is pretty bad. Evolution is the only mail client I know of that works with Exchange at all, and it does a half decent job. But the UI is somewhat meh and often times I have to xkill Evolution and restart it. Overall, it works pretty decently, but with a few snags. Meanwhile, the "email" client for Android is flipping sweet and very user friendly.
With Android being touch driven, I do wonder about keyboard shortcuts to speed up the usability of the UI. For example, it'd be nice to hit a hot key to bring up the apps menu, along with the notification bar, etc.
Hardware support is a bit of a concern, unless I want to buy a Nexus tablet with HDMI out and hook up to an HD monitor. This isn't entirely a bad idea (sounds logical to me... desktop mode for , but with a newborn at home, buying a tablet for this kind of tinkering when I have spare laptops available is kind of a stretch. I do wonder how I can get my wifi working on this one laptop, for example, as it flat out does not work...
EDIT - Looks like it's the same deal as Linux. Broadcom chip? Too bad. Intel chip? Wifi amazingness. Die Broadcom.
Those are just some initial thoughts and questions on the table for now. I have heard some users who use Android as their full time OS and quite enjoy it. This intrigues me, as I've always been the "why would I want a mobile OS on my computer" type. But hey, if it gets the job done, hard to argue with that.
