well, if they haven't released it, it seems a bit early to say 'mobody cared'. And as for their demo, did it really implement everything? or just enough to give examples? If they include it in 12.10, publicise it, and then nobody cares I'll start to believe you.
docking units don't have CPUs.
Plus you have this amazing assumption that people who write small android apps can scale them up to full features apps without a problem.
your attitude that the current apps and android apps cannot co-exist, all existing software must be thrown out and re-written is exactly what I expect from the "big boys" I mentioned above.
I expect that the reality is going to be that the convenience of having your entire system with you is going to overcome a lot of the 'opposition' to the continued use of existing 'ugly' apps.
but once people actually have the options we'll see what happens with it.
