What do you think, is there a future in Android on PC. There are always debate of why no big company will not have its own distro bla bla.. So here it is, Google behemoth is coming. :)

Is Android ultimate "rule them all" distro sometime in future?

(I would like that ;) )

I don't think the system in its current form is suitable for anything but tablets, smartphones, and other touch-based devices. Chrome OS, or any other distro, would be much better.

Chrome OS is better suited.

Hopefully more netbooks will also have touchscreen. That will make the idea of android on a netbook alot more viable.

While tablets may appeal to some people, I prefer to use a hardware keyboard. A high-breed netbook with a keyboard and touch screen would be perfect for me.

hmm.. I not sure we are talking about same thing. Netbook is exactly like laptop. Only smaller screen. Android will be direct opponent of ubuntu netbook remix.

this is netbook

In other words everything BUT the desktop computer. :) This year will come android for netbooks. After that I think it will be direct opponent of windows. I am just worried package management, standard UI, etc... well, you know, standard problem of every distro :)
