It's hard for Android to become a full blown desktop OS. After all, Android's APIs are Java based, which seems to be fine for mobile applications, but not a smart choice for desktop.

Imagine Photoshop or Crysis written in Java.

Omg... I just couldn't imagine them eating up even more resources before. Thanks for the nightmare.

*steps back, shocked, with an image of a garbage-collected photoshop finally managing to eat up 6 GB of RAM plus all of the VRAM when editing an average 10 MB JPEG file in the head*
