1. what do you think about smartwatches?
2. do they become popular?
3. are they able to be game platform?
4. would you prefer using smartwatch than smartphone?
5. what os you think it be good for them?

1. They sound like an expensive toy right now.
2. Maybe. I don't really care.
3. Probably. Note that you can make games with just about any hardware. While working on a traffic sensor I wrote a simple 'frogger' style app into it to play during the self-configuration process...
4. Depends. Some people's "phones" are basically full-sized tablets, a watch would certainly be more portable.
5. Vendor's choice. The OS is a relatively minor concern, it is the policies around the OS that matter. Do you care what OS is running the PlayStation? Do you care what OS is running your microwave? Do you care about the differences between the hundreds of Linux distros or BSD or FreeBSD or HPUX or the official Unix or any other *nix system? Do you care what OS is running in your automobile? Right now the fight in phones is over platform, but most people don't know that and consider it an OS battle. It is a platform battle, with competing platforms fighting for dominance. The specific operating systems used by those platforms has changed many times over the years.

this is even a good topic i never thinked or talked about - 

IM quite unhappy that andriod devices (as far as i know maybe im wrong) do not let you write just and oldschool lov level native c api that will utilize 100% of cpu and ram and some classic lov level api ... as far as i know (not sure) when you write on android 

youre running on virtual machine, not doing hand memory managment.. not sure as to that - but i dislike it , java is probably not so slow but still i love c coding

Considering your post history and apparent age, I'm guessing you have *ALWAYS* been on a virtual machine. Do you think your process on Windows, Linux, or Mac is directly in control of everything?

Relatively few people write code that runs in such unprotected environments. These days even microcontrollers are starting to see virtualized processes.

You mean ram virtualization on x86? i just dont know android

so i am not sure how it works, (could maybe someone explauin the basics? would be pure native c coding on android faster? what kind of layer is there for client apps?) but this is probably 

other thing and android has it higher than windows/winapi

 

If android imposes on me to write in java instead of c this is major

thing (when we speak that os is not that matter - it matters imo)

I do care in general i find it good, Probably it could be cool

device 9at least for some aplicattions, music/maps/phone, and maybe avaliable for some "microgaming" ;\

You should be making an OS in C everytime you start a project since you always have certain problems. That way, you have the following benefits:
1) You know what you're doing.
2) It's the lowest level
3) No hand holding
4) You utilize 100% of the RAM and CPU
5) It'll be fast
6) Manual memory management.
7) It won't be Java
8) <whatever other benefits you see>.
