Yes. I can confirm, that running Linux on Android devices is not so easy 
as it would seems to be. Because of our handicap.
The problem even start when visually impaired user would want to run 
Bash shell on Android device. Many terminal emulators do not output data 
so it can be read. Next true is, that no every user without advanced 
knowledge would want to run Bash shell from Android device. Sure, it is 
always possible to use Android SDK from Windows system, USB cable and 
user can use adb shell with NVDA or other screen reader.
In some cases, it is possible to reboot device from Linux shell with no 
need to force turn it off. Which is very practice. I will also try to 
find, if Android devices contain some EXT command line program for 
checkinx file system or no.
