STOCK Android OS build released

I thought that was the basis of its design, platform independent. Big fan of Google here, but the ball is in their hands on that I think. Either the layer separation is not working that well or they need to make it more "developer" friendly so any build can support any app.

I think it's pretty awesome that there are different versions of Android, such as the regular Android, then the TV version and the watch version and etc.
Once I have enough free time I'd love to cobble together a Raspberry Pi, a battery and a small touch screen and somehow mount it to my arm and gloat to my friends that I built my own "smartwatch", the best OS that I could imagine to use would be the smart watch version of Android.
But of course the issue that so many people who have their own unique gadget is that they would love to have a small dedicated team of programmers to pump out regularly updated Android builds for their device.
I think most people who don't live off of the most current popular smart phones get that feeling "oh no, a new phone just came out, now no one is going to release new Android updates for my old phone."
But also with my problem with Google Play Movies and the Cannot Fetch License error, I understand that is a DRM problem, and for most Android experiences, like say if you just side load your favorite app, then you probably wouldn't worry about DRM...
I heard that coming up fairly soon Google is going to ask app developers to use DRM in their apps to help secure them in the Play Store. I don't remember if it was going to be mandatory, but I wonder what life would be like for us using custom ARM boards trying to run Android and slowly start to notice that new versions of our favorite apps start using DRM...
