    Dedoimedo's first encounter with Android, on a normal computing device, no less! So here's a spanking new review of Android-x86 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich release candidate, a port of Android open-source project for x86 architecture, including live session, look & feel, connectivity - Wireless, Bluetooth, Samba sharing, Web camera, multimedia - Flash, MP3 playback, browsing experience, apps, shop, command line, sharing files using micro-SD card, security, settings, performance, suspend & resume, problems, business model considerations, and more.

    I think to be useful on desktop, they must use a different GUI with true multitasking.

    The question of the day.
    And it applies to more than just Android. Change does not necessarily mean progress.
