You Can Now Run Android Apps on Your Wayland-Powered Linux Desktop

Collabora is known for their contributions to the Linux kernel, improving the Linux support for Chrome OS and Android, among lots of other cool things, but it looks like they’ve been working lately on a new side project called SPURV, which enabled running of Android apps on your Linux desktop.
