Today's Financial Times says that Acer will be shipping a "netbook" running Android and XP later this year. Dell and HP are also supposed to be interested in similar products!

One of the main attractions is fast power up and power down compared to XP.

I find the idea of a new operating system to compete with Windows and Linux on serious computing hardware to be very encouraging.

Time for me to download the SDK and investigate.
