Linux "Android drivers are returning to the Linux kernel. Kernel maintainer Greg Kroah-Hartman has retrieved the Android drivers removed from the staging area of Linux 2.6.33 in the spring of 2010 andput them back into his development branch for version 3.3 of the Linux kernel. [...] The plan is for a Linux 3.3 kernel to be able to boot on an Android device without further patches."

Making Android devices first class Linux citizens should really help the Linux ecosystem overall.

I like the idea of being able to use an Android devices as specific based Linux 'appliances. I already do that with servers and this will be a great extension.
