Android Applications Running on Ubuntu Netbook Remix

Wow, it's been quite some time since I've last blogged. However, this drought isn't due to lack of awesome work or news, it's just that I'm pretty lazy :).

I'm working to remedy this with more frequent blogging about my work at Canonical, but I thought I'd start off with highlighting something which I think is really cool: Android applications running natively on Ubuntu Netbook Remix:

The work has been done by Michael Frey and his team in the OEM services group in Canonical. I think this is cool because I've seen a bunch of pictures and videos of Android running as the OS on a netbook, but it's the first time I've Android mixing with other apps on a Linux desktop. It means you can get the best of both worlds :).

If you want to see more pics, or want to find out how it was achieved, Mike's doing a series of posts about the work on his blog or you can follow him on twitter.
