Android is Working on X

Standard
As you know, Android was designed for mobile device, so there is no large value from Android for desktop environment. But there is no denying that Android has extreme applications resources. If we can combine Android and desktop environment, it will make great experience on Linux. By hacking Android framework, we made Android work on X with success, it is a "real" X application right now. You can see these screenshots:




From screenshots, Android is running on Chromium OS, based on Android-x86 project. Currently, we can use chromium browser to surf internet and use Android application in the same time. In first screenshot, using "ps ax" to show all process on system to prove Android is running on X Server rather than emulator.
