Android made for desktops.
Available free for X86.
Literally nothing bad to say.
>>
>LagOS now for desktops
>>
Does it work with Google Play? Is it released under GPL or another free license? Would it be suitable for HTPC use? Is it compatible with Marshmallow? Does it have per-app permission settings?

If the answer to all these is yes, then mite b cool.

>Literally nothing bad to say.
OK shill.
>>
>>52298861
>Literally nothing bad to say.
Except the whole Android part.

I buy a desktop/laptop so I can run a real operating system on it, not some dumbed down phone trash for facebook tards.
>>
>>52298861
JUST WHAT ANDROID NEEDS, EVEN MORE DIVERSIFICATION AND FRAGMENTATION.

You idiot OP.
>>
>>52298972
>real operating system
An OS is an OS. Linux users used to say this about Windows years ago until they realized that it was a stupid argument. Freedom is the most important thing.
>>
>>52298861
Why the fuck would I want my desktop to run on a phone OS?

Suppose you want me to start pawing at the screen too to make anything work, or are you going to overhaul the whole interface stack while you're at it?
>>
I installed android-x86 on my old shitty netbook
>hpmini 311, Nvidia ION, atom 1.6ghz. 2GBram

surprisingly it run fast. faster than any linux

I mean more fluid, I could watch HD videos on youtube with no hiccups, something that no linux distro with no WM could ever do.

Literally ChromeOS built on top of android.

so if you want this, you got 4 options

ChromeOS
>built on Gentoo
GalliumOS
>built on Xubuntu
Papyros
>built on Arch
RemixOS
>built on android?
why?

This could open a new era for those so autistic to install linux on normies' pcs, android is harder to fuck up than windows but simpler to use than linux, and it's a recognisable name, so they won't ask why this strange 'buntu doesn't work

Look mum I posted it again!
>>
>>52299040
Plus it has all the best games, Facebook, etc
>>
>>52299039
But can it run a tiling WM?
>>
>>52298972
If it has memory management, a file directory, and can interface with external devices like a printer, it is a real operating system. Everything else is convenience, and there probably already are compilers for C and other languages for Android. You're just an idiot.
>>
>>52298861
How's performance?
Will it run smooth on an athlon 2000+ xp-m?

Not available yet. Demo is live at CES.

>Does it work with Google Play?
Has it bulit in.

>Is it released under GPL or another free license?
Same license as android.

>Would it be suitable for HTPC use?
Of course!

>Is it compatible with Marshmallow?
Jide will update it to Marshmallow

>Does it have per-app permission settings?
Same as with android, so yes.

If I wanted an oversized phone, I would buy a tablet. I use a desktop or laptop when I want a computer I can actually use to run multiple applications at once that are something more than trendy glorified web portals.

Jesus Christ what an unfair comparison.

I'm more impressed that the Note 5 can get half the performance of a quad core i7.

it's the most popular OS worldwide, so it makes sense that it makes it's way to the pc market.

congrats, you are not the target audience. move along.

Android is currently pretty much everything that was wrong with Windows 10 years ago. Shit design, viruses, malware, evil company, laggy, bloated, unstable, and insecure.
>>
Also, can Remix OS run applications as root?
>>
>>52302013
>Windows 10 years ago.
>>
>>52298861
I'm excited about this project. Android has a massive amount of compatible software, and it's potential is quite crippled because of the android platforms, most being tiny screens with slow cpu's and rarely over 1gb of ram. I've used Android x86 on standard laptops and IT FUCKING FLIES. Only problem was the silly GUI, that doesn't really make sense on a PC. You want a panel, a WM, etc. Remix OS is adding just that to the already excellent Android x86 OS.

This could be 2016's gamechanger OS.

You know the answer to this issue senpai
>>
I've got a Remix Mini and Remix OS has got a few issues, but in general runs pretty well. Biggest issue is a few popular apps won't play nice and only run in full screen mode
>>
>>52302012
What is their target audience? Some nebulous group of facetards looking at their desktops and going "man, Windows and Mac sure are complicated, I wish my desktop ran a gimped smartphone operating system, that would be trendy as fuck!"

And in any case, if you're part of that target audience you don't belong on /g/ anyway.

No one asked for this, no one cares.

Also Google already said they will fuse Android with Chrome OS so FUCK OFF with your shitty distro.
>>
>>52298861
Poor choice of name. I don't really think it'll be ever taken seriously
>>
I will abslotely test this out once it comes out.
This + root + afwall + xprivacy will make an epic secure OS, plus busybox installs a lot of the typical linux tools. fdroid would work nicely on this too.

tl;dr will download on day 1

People with a Remix OS device needed to use an exploit to get root. Since Remix OS is proprietary, someone will need to hack the system image download or use an exploit.

>>52303108
I know what you mean but Android is too big to be replaced right now. It'll also not be as bad since you can run Android with 16 GB of RAM now.

>>52303117
Hopefully it would just scale correctly out of the box. I know that KDE doesn't do this yet.

Might install on my x200. Could be pretty fucking cool.

so you can run a fucking smartphone OS on a laptop to run apps, that are usually things you can run on your web browser with a desktop OS ?
