I'm just installing the Bluestacks software and will write what I think about it. Of course I'm not using the special hardware and am only using Windows 7 on this production machine.

Seems pretty good. Definitely alot faster and more usable than the emulator that comes with the Android SDK. I'm running tunein radio without any bother. This is something that should've been in Ubuntu a long time ago.

Does it work with Wine? :D

I totally agree with you, there. The ADK emulator royally sucks.

I'm going to try it in wine... Can wine handle msi installers? If not I'll try and copy the folder across and see what happens.
