Not sure I follow why you would want it on the MOJO, but I did back it several weeks ago when it was around 25k, so I am looking forward to seeing what Console OS will do, specifically for getting Android on windows desktops. Will be interesting to see how it plays out.

This is convergence in full effect!

Good post, I wasn't aware of this.
Basically it's a vendor port of Android to some laptops/Tablets.

"We have to build Android for one device at a time"
Limited HW target builds, so it's not like windows/linux, install on anything... but like a mobile custom build.

There's a lot of cheap android netbooks on ebay already... basically cheap phone HW.
"....We're taking the next step, and bringing Android back to the desktop." of cause! lol

This is mainly targeting tablets though, switching between windows and android.
PC support, sounds secondary (too many drivers to rebuild.. thus the voting).

Android, has a small footprint (like winXP) and runs in emulation on a PC just fine.

Not sure why you would want ConsoleOS on mojo... it's already android?

yeah is android almost pure only with a custom windows manager and launcher

read this part

WindowFlinger – A true window manager for Android – run Android apps in windows (Console OS will run two apps side-by-side without Pro)
InstaSwitch – Building a new hypervisor to instantly toggle between native Android and native Windows
Console Remote Access -> Remotely access your Console OS device from any old Android
Additional codecs and media playback support
Native DVR support (planned ATSC, DVB, QAM/CableCARD, & DTCP-IP)
Built-in media serving (UPnP and DLNA)
Console Files – A new file manager we’re building in to the desktop
Console Maps Pro – Premium Maps with Enhanced Turn-by-Turn

also its Kit Kat

also you allow you switch instanly form one SO to other in x86 is with Windows or Ubuntu ,if they do a ARM version is posible to have Ubuntu and Android

acording to the FAQ

What about dual-booting with Ubuntu?
It's our goal to do so - but we had to limit our feature list to the bare minimum that we can shoot for with our initial goal of $50,000 to raise. We actually dual-boot with Ubuntu in the lab, routinely, so it's a matter of when, not if.

As to other flavors of Linux, it'll be based on demand but once we support Ubuntu, most Debian-based flavors should fall into order.

Anyway they dont have a ARM version
