Android and the ParrotOS Concept

I just had a revelation that I believe to be accurate: my concept of an OS that is a VM, which I dubbed ParrotOS after the Parrot VM, appears to be reality: Android. I haven't done much with it, but it does run on multiple devices, each with a different hardware configuration, and all of the software, as far as I can tell, will run on all Android devices. This is, of course, barring OS compatibility.

The coolest part is the fact that the concept works pretty well. Android phones appear to have very good performance despite the fact that the "apps" run in a VM.

Now if only we can get this to work on other devices, like desktops, laptops, and servers.
