    And the opensource orgs that work for ideals aren't exactly happy to toil to add a major closed-source app provider to linux.

    Google's runtime for chromeOS is mostly open afaik, which allows people to just port it over and run it inside Chromium (Google doesn't really have any good reason to prevent that) https://archon-runtime.github.io/
    most likely google shutdown all this projects, maybe a CL for ubuntu touch was the solution for the lack of app's, at least some of them

    Sailfish OS isn't probably major enough. And even there it's available only to phones sold with license and therefore none of the ports to other phones have it. And it must be installed from software store separately so not quite out of the box even with Jolla phone.

    Phoronix: The Android Runtime On Chrome OS Makes Use Of Wayland

    With Google's Android Runtime for Chrome (ARC) it turns out that this technology for letting Android apps run on Chrome OS is making use of the Wayland protocol and could open up other Wayland clients to running on Chrome OS...
