They should have implemented ART or AOT from the beginning native code is always the way to go, stupid Google stupid Google they only realized now.
Choosing to run applications in a virtual machine is one stupid bad idea, are those that work at Google really that stupid ? I'm amazed.
They could just used plain linux. Just add drivers.
But this would mean no control of google.

I wonder if ART will also apply to apps moved to Sd card since they are talking about replacing Dalvik. What will the perfomance be when you remove an sd card and then re-insert?
zamroni, 08 Nov 2013Is this why Kitkat will be possible on 512 MB RAM devices?No. KitKat still uses Dalvik by default.
ART is experimental. I do not recommend it yet. I think it will be stable and enabled by default in Android 5.0
btw: WP8 uses AOT compiler
So it looks like Google is finally doing something about Android's built in lag.
Comrade, 07 Nov 2013Whatever they do, android will never be good OS. It's just a one big mess..lol Troll
Anonymous, 07 Nov 2013You can't fix the building after having bad foundation. That is about android systemSo you are telling that android's foundation is bad? And hence they are updating the OS?? If thats the case, why is apple, microsoft releasing? Taking your point to consideration, since they too are releasing updates, they too have bad foundation and hence they are also the same!
Emissary, 08 Nov 2013thank you google for admitting the lag in android It's not a lag. Only that the application takes a bit longer to start after you select it. But if you are using an android for sufficient long time, you do get used to it automatically.
I wouldn't have a problem waiting for app to install if the battery life and device performance is increasing. Bring it on Google. It would be a major and decisive step towards being truly number one platform.(:)
Comrade, 07 Nov 2013Whatever they do, android will never be good OS. It's just a one big mess..u said it right iuser
brynn, 08 Nov 2013Exciting stuff and I understand whats going on.. Another rubbish argument is RAM..Lets say ... moreTo the best of my knowledge, no currently available or planned android device has more than three GB of RAM
Exciting stuff and I understand whats going on..
Another rubbish argument is RAM..Lets say device x has 1 GB RAM and with all your apps or games running you have 184MB RAM left why are folk complaining??? If with all your apps running why are you complaining what do you expect to happen you still have 184MB RAM spare..
What I am getting at is why do you want 2GB RAM its just a waste if your not using it,,RAM is their to be used so if you have some left over that's fine all your doing is having 1208MB RAM spare instead of 184 your not going to use that RAM so there is no need to have more just to sit there doing nothing.
There is no valid reason for folk wanting more RAM because device x only has 184MBb left all your doing is activating a bank of RAM to do absolutely nothing except taking battery...In the instance of you opening up more apps going over your RAM limit Android will close another app but having so much open is just pushing a smartphone beyond what even computers could handle.
