Personally, I would need far more than just multi-window support for
Android to be a worthwhile desktop OS for me. A lot of the issues
(though not nearly all) relate to software ecosystem.
For example, I can't even find a halfway decent alternative to windows
notepad, let alone any better text editor. Basic undo/redo support is
rare in Android software, as is saving/loading actual files and sharing
user files between different programs on the same machine, which is
something desktops had pretty much sorted out decades ago.
The whole backup/restore situation is a mess (there's an article that
explains my issues with it better than I can, but my link to it is
buried somewhere ATM), PalmOS already had backup/restore sorted out much
better over a decade ago. Heck, even same with iOS if you can tolerate
iTunes and, well, Apple/iOS.
That's just a few off-the-top-of-my-head examples. There's many others,
like the bluetooth keyboard lag/unresponsiveness that you've already
mentioned, and I can confirm from experience.
