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 needed something to replace OpenBSD (no ACPI or sound on a netbook -.-), so once they have a full working release for Atom netbooks, I think I'll give it a shot.

Well I'll be damned, there's an open source build of 3.2 optimized for Eee PCs! Posting from it.

Got a link to that? Or a list of which eeePCs it works with? Could be interesting to try it on a 1005HA.

The Eee PC is just my screw-around-with-operating-systems machine. It's run Android, OpenBSD, Haiku, and a bunch of different Linux distros.
