Re: Should have happened years ago
There is no reason that a desktop should be written in Java to host Android apps any more than Windows should be written in WinRT to host Windows Store apps. The two can co-exist. Besides which, Java is merely the programming language that most (not all) apps are written with on Android. It says nothing of how the code is packaged or executed.
Secondly, the speed of updates is a totally orthogonal issue.
