Ah yes. Now I live relatively close to Ukraine, I thought of getting
one. But the company has shut down due to the war with Russia and
they've gone up in price 10x over. :-(

My mum had one. She demolished a gas station kiosk with it, then
later, drove home from work, drove into the garage... right up to the
back wall, trapping herself in the car as its door opened forwards and
it had no reverse gear. :-D She sat there for a whole day until my dad
got home from work and freed her. :-)

I only had minutes on one, once, at a trade show decades back. :'(

Oh, it's being tried:

Long term, I think Google should find some way to converge ChromeOS
and Android. Having 2 different Linux-based OSes seems redundant and a
waste of effort. And there's an internal-only Linux server distro too,
I hear.

But they can afford the duplication of effort.
