Android and the Ubuntu Kernel

More news out of UDS. As many know Canonical demoed Android running on Ubuntu on the x86 architecture. As was noted quite a bit did not work because the demo was running a stock Ubuntu kernel. For some background you can read an article on Ars Technica about the demo.

Today we held an open session on Incorporating Android Into the Ubuntu Kernel. It was decided that we would make an Android Enabled Ubuntu kernel available. The kernel will be available on x86 and ARM architectures.

We will be forming up the spec over the next few weeks and I'll keep updating it here as well.

For the curious.... You can find more info on Android here:
