Android isn’t largely thought of as a desktop operating system, but if you’re curious about how Google’s mobile OS works, running it on a device you already have isn’t a bad idea. This will give you an idea of what to expect on a phone or tablet, all without making a single change to your laptop or desktop since you can easily do this from a flash drive or memory card.
The guys over Remix OS have released last evening, August 31, 2016, a new update to their Android-x86-based operating system for personal computers, version 3.0.203.
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:
Remix OS is a desktop-style operating system built around Google Android. It lets you run virtually any Android app or game, but it provides a desktop, taskbar, and window manager that makes Google’s mobile operating system feel more like Windows and other desktop operating systems.
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.
The Android-x86.org is glad to release the 4.4-r4 to the public. This is the fourth and probably the last stable release of Android-x86 4.4 (kitkat-x86). The prebuilt image is available in the following site as usual:
Google Android may have been developed as a smartphone operating system (and later ported to tablets, TVs, watches, and other platforms), but over the past few years we’ve seen a number of attempts to turn it into a desktop operating system.
The Android Debug Bridge (ADB) is a useful tool for developers to communicate with emulator instance and connected Android-powered device. It also works with Android-x86 virtual machine saving a lot of time when transferring files and installing apps on Android VM from computer.

Everyone knows how S-L-O-W and painful the Android emulator can be when developing. The Intel x86 system images are better, but still a bit slow, so most of us test and debug on actual devices. Still, emulators come in handy. In the past, I came across the Android x86 project and thought it would be a good option, but found the project to not be ready for prime time. With their 4.4 release earlier this month, that has changed.
Have you ever installed Ubuntu, Fedora or any other Linux based operating system alongside windows. At-least Tried? No! No worries here is a step-by-step guide on “How to Install and Run Android 4.4 KitKat alongside Windows ?” and this is way simple than the above operating systems because it is a mobile operating system and doesn’t require any sort of drivers and installations.

When we talk about Android, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? I bet 99% of the people will answer smartphones or tablets (unless there’s an app that you’re crazy about and that’s what you prefer). However, Android, being the open source platform that it is, offers much more flexibility in terms of the hardware that it can run on, and so there’s Android out there that can run just fine on x86 computer architecture as well. Yup – full-blown Android running natively, not the likes of BlueStacks! In this post, we’ll show you exactly how to get that.
If you wish to install latest version of Android 4.4 KitKat on your Windows 8 or 7 PC, here is the simple guide. It is easy with free desktop virtualization software Oracle VirtualBox. There are few methods available with earlier Android versions to install directly on normal PC hardware but these methods are slightly complicated and not recommended for all computer users.
Google’s confectionery legacy of Android operating systems has enough digital sugar to make you nauseous. It all started in 2009 with Android 1.5 Cupcake and now five years later, Google ‘s infatuation with sweets lives on through KitKat. KitKat is a great OS but you need the physical tablet or smartphone before you can actually play with it.
January 31, 2014, 1:18 PM — Wish you could run Android or its apps on your Windows PC? I've got three ways you can do it, one to run Android apps inside Windows, and two to install the entire Android operating system on your Windows PC.
Intel is now interested in pushing “Dual OS” PCs — devices with both Windows 8 and Android on them. But you don’t have to buy a new PC to do this — you can run Android apps and even the Android operating system on your current PC.
Windows 8 tablets are becoming more widely used, but the operating system – at least in its Modern mode – is light on the ground with particular apps. One way around this is to install Android on your tablet.
