There are always new Linux distributions coming to life each year. But VolksPC is probably one of the most original since it tries to combine Debian and Android in one ARM-based distribution. Yes, it will let you run desktop Debian applications as well as mobile Android apps all in one computer. This means you'll have access to the Android Market Place as well as Debian's repositories.
According to The Register:
Produced by the group that created the MicroXwin kernel-based X Windows implementation, the VolksPC distribution is designed to give users an ARM-Debian environment that supports Debian's range of desktop applications, while improving support for things like YouTube playback and HD video.
“We created a unified distribution that allows both Android and Debian LXDE/XFCE applications to run simultaneously at native speeds. On ARM, our distribution is based on a modified ARMHF Debian Wheezy rootfs”, the developers write.More at The Register
This is certainly a unique idea, and it could be quite useful for folks that want the advantages of Debian and Android in one convenient product. You can get more information about it on the VolksPC site.
