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.

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.
GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton informs Softpedia today about the immediate availability for download of a new build of his custom Android-x86 KitKat 4.4.4 computer operating system.
The Android-x86-based Remix OS was launched a couple of weeks ago to great acclaim, and now it's receiving the first update.
