    That's the point - ANGLE could support it. There's probably little point of doing that though performance-wise, as ES lacks certain GL parts for a reason.

    Treble doesn't cover the kernel, where a lot of the update issues still occur.

    Now if only they could figure out a way to push system updates to everyone so we don't have to depend on manufacturers and carriers. Android isn't so free and open when you factor in having to buy OS updates every two years due to firmware blobs not being updated and/or the OS not having an if/then compat layer regarding drivers and blobs.

    That's called Fuschia.

    It has a stable device driver interface.
