We have already seen some projects based on Android OS to run the AOSP source on your PC alongside Windows just like the popular Remix OS that was recently updated to version 2.0 supporting the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Similarly, the Android x86 project lets you run the Android OS on the x86 platform.
Chih-Wei Huang from the Android-x86 project was proud to announce the availability of the first Release Candidate (RC) build of the upcoming Android-x86 6.0 operating system.
The Android-x86 project is glad to announce 6.0-rc1 release to public. This is the first release candidate for Android-x86 6.0 (marshmallow-x86) stable release. The prebuilt images are available in the following site:
Interview Which platform will the next billion people on the internet use? Is it more likely to be Microsoft’s Windows squeezed onto low-cost mobile hardware, or a mobile OS given some steroids? Three former Google executives are betting it's the latter.
Deep dive Jide’s Remix OS is Android for a desktop or tablet OS: with multitasking, overlapping windows and the shortcut conveniences you need for productivity-style work. And the firmware tweaks to make it run well on x86 processors. I’ve seen what the next billion internet users will be running.
To get the most out of the x86 platform there are a number of performance optimizations you can apply to your project that help to maximize performance. In this guide, we will show a variety of tools to use as well as features in the Unity* software that can help you enhance the performance of your Unity project. We will discuss how to handle items like texture quality, batching, culling, light baking, and HDR effects.

The leader of the Android-x86 project has just announced that he has entered a partnership with Jide Technology, the creators of the already famous Remix OS.
In 2009, I started the Android-x86 Open Source Project as a passion project. I am a computer engineer, a software developer and this is what gets me up in the morning. However over time, I began to see that this project had much greater potential than I had first thought. We had laid the foundation to spread the use of Android to as many of the common x86 platforms in the world as possible.
Jide has come a long way from an unknown Chinese startup to perhaps the champion of bringing Android to more than just smartphones and tablets. To be specific, to PC-like hardware at first and now, to actual PCs themselves. Jide released the alpha version of Remix OS for PCs last month, completely for free.
