Google's Android

Before Christmas I was playing around with getting native apps to run underneath Google's android framework and having quite a bit of success.-

Apart from a slightly strange dynamic linker and libc everything pretty much behaves like standard linux. There are couple of missing libc and libpthread functions that are easy enough to stub/implement and then away you go. I even got SDL up and running with very little trouble.

Also, it looks like I'm not the only one who thinks Android bares more than a passing resemblance to the software stack we build at Transvirtual back in 2000. Jim Pick also mentioned it on his blog.
