Samsung Dex concept vs Gemini dual boot (switch to Linux DE without device reboot)

What do you think about Samsung's Dex approach?

As far as I understand Dex allows to share kernel (chroot?) between Android and Linux DE and switch it dynamically.

It's a interesting idea, but it's nothing that can't be done already on a lot of devices. Dex, I'm sure, will be accessible and mainstream.

I just don't think people will use it - if you go to the effort of plugging it in to a keyboard and screen you may as well be using a desktop computer or laptop. Which, if you need one, you have already got. Samsung talk about writing code on the go then plugging into a screen and continuing. In my experience this doesn't happen. Reading code on a smartphone is painful enough let alone writing.

However, if your smartphone had a physical keyboard..  well that may just make all the difference in the world
