I am just curious to know what benefit X86 support would have?
it says "cross-platform support on ARM, x86, and MIPS technology"
so does it mean that now it will be easy to install new android on my X86 laptop running core i3?
also i think that if android now natively supports X86 so it would be easy to make it an OS for desktop with some tweaking in UI element to make it keyboard and mouse friendly...(PS: i dont have much knowledge of software development)

i use windows mainly for playing AAA PC games(only thing android cant do for me),i wish android to one day support high end graphic cards like nvidia gtx 780 along with developers support for AAA games that would be a dream come true situation for me because then i could ditch costly windows altogether

Well yeah it will improve the support. But it's already done. I mean, android as a pc os (without tweaking them ). Check this site
www.android-x86.org
The android l is just gonna improve this project and make him better. About tweaking theme, the best solution i can offer is to install xposed and xhalowindow (if its called that i cant remember) and install a launcher (right now there isn't a launcher that is look just like windows, so it's need to be developed, I think it is time to do so with the new 2014 google android tv, I mean to make and old pc a google android tv and make the best of the old device)
The android x86 work with usb input, any gpu, LAN, wifi, bluetooth, mouse, pad, keyboard, microphone, camera and multitouch and more
The only weaknesses is that a lot of apps that doesn't support x86 prossesor (only ARM prossesor) will bring force close. It doesn't mean that all the ARM apps, but a lot of them. Another weakness is that apps that doesn't support rotation, will rotate all the screen untill shutdown (unless you'll install an app that force landscape rotation everywhere)
