now since most normal distros don't work well with just touchscreen input (and as you note userspace interfaces to the hardware the kernel has drivers for), more work is needed to make it practical.

You would think Google is figuring this out so Android and ChromeOS are cooperating runtimes on one kernel; a Chromebook capable of running a subset of Android apps (like Google TV) seems useful. But for whatever reason the two projects are disjoint and ChromeOS is resolutely web-centric. FWIW I've tried booting Android-X86 and it failed on desktop and laptop (as did Chromium OS), perhaps due to poorly-documented graphics requirements.
