I think you are right, why not?
I mean really? Ever since I got my Droid I have barley touched my desktop or laptop with ubuntu since as it has fulfilled all my day to day functions! I mean wow, I had a blackberry before and its web browsing was bad and app functions were hard to use even though I thought it was cool but now the world on the Droids has filled those gaps that were missing! I am even on it now writing this when my laptop is 10 ft away! What can't I do? There is very little that I think is missing like the ability to easily access root functions easy or install apps on the SD to conserve space without a hack! That's about all I have so far! I think the Android system was freaking big step forward for the open source community and now that just about every phone manufacture can run it on just about any hardware they throw at it has moved this a long way for us! Am I wrong? I will give you that a netbook is not big news but it is something! But some people do use them daily for everything! The open source community has filled tons of gaps in these past few years than anyone has ever thought possible, I mean just two years ago I could not run all my monitors on my quad video card without a work around now I finally have a pure plug and play system that works! And these gaps are being filled rapidly! We as developers have had to move fast and to be honest I started developing for windows but now I almost refuse to as almost anything can be developed as a web based app and be run from any system and Droid alike! We have finally moved past techy and hobbiest in to the realm of serious business in the open source community! Where do we go now! I agree that a full blown distribution running on a tablet would be one of the biggest steps into getting into the hands of the everyday users apart from the Droid! Just a matter of time after that when desktops and servers employ this after that! But how much longer will desktops be a daily for anyone if they still are at all, I mean I don't see many companies hand those out much as we are an on the go world! Unless we can hold it we don't want it! I guess there is my two cents! Lol!
