We're at the native Linux desktop, moving towards the Android desktop (netbooks coming soon). What would bridge those two environments, is to offer a second Linux sandbox which runs along with Android.
It would be really cool if the co-Linux environment itself could be bundled as an Android app. In any case, bundling key native Linux apps as Android apps, would be a fantastic way to piggy-back on the Android Market and ecosystem, without building out any new infrastructure. This would also enable one to focus on delivering only those apps that add significant value, and not spend time duplicating technical efforts with Android. In fact, I believe this could be the future of the Linux desktop distro, until the time when all apps are available on the cloud.
