I also never heard of Skia but I was surprised about its application hear. Flutter isn't "Dart all the way down", it is "Dart for application logic but Skia for the UI".

It is this UI part that, although very nicely explained on the flutter faq, completely takes me by surprise. Basically Google is making the Android UI in 1 team, but another team of Googlers says that you should make your own UI because the Android UI doesn't develop quickly enough.
