Yoon said Samsung was working to introduce at least two smartphones running on its own Tizen operating system, a major step in the market leader's bid to break out of the Android universe.

Sure.

you are making one grand mistake here.

you can make 100% android compatible distro from tizen, you can't make half assed linux distro out of android.

maybe i'm wrong here, but...
- binder is in kernel, no need to extra work
- you could make surface flinger as wayland compositor
- slapping dalvik on it should not be a problem either since it was already done few times now
- multi seat support already allows you to do different sessions at the same time
- adjust session loading as part of systemd

and yeah, one of posts before me said it really awesome with android not being liked, but rather tolerated.

you would get exact same android, just without crippling other ecosystem
