We reported two weeks ago that the Android-x86 4.4-r4 might just be the last in the Android 4.4 KitKat-based series of the Linux distribution, but it looks like the developers have decided to make one more maintenance release.

Softpedia has been informed today, February 2, 2016, by Linux developer Arne Exton about the availability of the January 2016 build of his commercial AndEX Live CD Android-x86-based operating system.
Android is the most popular mobile operating system in the world, but that does not mean it can’t be installed on the desktop. There are many ways to get Android running on a PC, including virtual device emulators like Genymotion, bootable USB versions like Remix OS, or even full stand alone applications like BlueStacks. Each have their advantages and disadvantages depending on your needs. Here is the full breakdown of each.
Remix OS is a version of Android designed to feel like a desktop operating system. In January the developers at Jide released an alpha version for PCs, allowing you to run Android apps and games on many computers… but only if they had 64-bit processors.
A new test release of Android-x86 6.0-Marshmallow is now available for those wanting to deploy the latest version of Android on their Intel/AMD hardware.

Information about Remix OS and its apparent issue with GPL and Apache surfaced last week, but its developers have taken some steps to correct that issue.
Something has either gone horribly wrong or gloriously right when your PC costs less than your mouse. We're going to say gloriously right - The Remix Mini is the latest hardware option from Jide, the company that recently burst into the headlines when they released their own free build of android (Remix OS) featuring multi-window and the ability to be installed on most AMD or Intel devices.
Today we have the pleasure of introducing you guys to an alternative computer operating system to the already popular Remix OS that everybody is talking about these days.
