I have to agree at least partially. I deal with a number of embedded systems in a factory environment and most of them run Win 3.11 or Win98SE. They run proprietary software that will not run on anything that doesn't allow low level hardware access. Android wouldn't help in that case. I would certainly push for Android or an embedded Linux OS if I had the Software Engineering Resources to re-make the software. Just having access to free software would be nice. Luckily I found FreeDOS which does a nice job for the programs that don't rely on Windows for their interface.
