Looking at

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux%2Fkernel%2Fgit%2Ftorvalds%2Flinux-2.6.git&a=search&h=HEAD&st=commit&s=android

my idea seems to be ... not very good at all !!

What do you think?
I'm not a kernel mainline developer so I don't understand the real meaning.
Basically, Android is a so hacked-up version of Linux it is hard to
maintain. Google has done some drivers and refused to maintain them or
make them follow upstream kernel so devs get frustrated, which is
legitimate imho.

Also, they have modified so many things in Linux (kernel + legacy
runtime environment), I'm surprised this OS received such a fame.

Thx Ben,
my original idea about Android was similar to yours.
But yours, I guess, is based to direct experience.
Anyway I think that Android's development environment is really nice,
so I'd like to know Tim opinion about my proposal.
I need to understand which is the best way to go on.
I could try to investigate Android introduction in a fully tested
industrial device, but I'm afraid to waste my precious time, and so I
could convert this work into an analisys of tools easy to use in order
to allow a normal developer to work on an embedded system.
