Google Android 4.0, otherwise known as Ice Cream Sandwich, has been released for x86. There is an ISO available, featuring hardware acceleration for AMD Radeon, but not yet for Intel-based systems. Several things don't work as of yet.

I have been running a 3.2 nightly on a Samsung NetBook. I have to say that Android on an x86 NetBook is an awesome creation. I'll be following this for sure.

It's apparent the project is in very early stage, so the product is incomplete. The people behind the project never claimed they had a finished product.

That's for android 4.0...

android 2.3.7 and 3.2.1 have been out for longer and work a lot better.
