Whatever they do, android will never be good OS. It's just a one big mess..
Running apps in a virtual machine is the wrong way to do it since it's like running an app in an emulator, this ART technique should have been done from the start.

Is it saying "we are innovating " . Or is it admitting " our OS sucks big time" .
I can't recall all details, but wasn't it Dalvik one of the patents in dispute (with Oracle?). If so, additionally to the technical and performance advantages, Google would be getting rid of this old issue. Again, it might be resolved, but also this could be a trend and make Android "unsueable" (if such word exists). That would also be good news. Technology should be based on engineers, not lawers.
So is it that android is not going to be Linux based OS that runs on virtual machine anymore??is it that its going to be native linux distro?? what do you think?

After 6 years of ignoring, they finally started to change the way the crappy multitasking is any Android. Hopefully they take notes from BlackBerry/WebOS/Meego.
Nice to see android going native support..looks like less RAM usage, faster performance/execution and more stability...
