What does /g/ think of this?

>Remix OS is our state of the art Android-based operating system. We mean it when we say you get a PC experience unlike anything on Android and an Android experience unlike anything on a PC. The innovative features we’ve brought to Remix OS 2.0 have been meticulously engineered to bring you the best of both worlds – the harmonious fusion of a mobile and desktop experience.

In the interest of an actual serious answer:

It's a cool but not very functional idea.

Android apps handle window resizing very very poorly. Until they can fix that it's gonna always feel clunky. Remix probably won't be able to fix it themselves, it'll take Google implementing multi window / multi pane frameworks for devs to bother actually making apps support it.

What I'd also like them to do is add an Xwindow integrated layer, like Apple did years ago. Primary reason being so you could then run a full Chrome/FF browser, Android web browsers lack functionality the big ones have & handle large screens weird. You'd probably want some little app that shows itself as a web browser intent to Android apps then can launch the full browser.

But yeah neat but not yet useful
>>
>>52348330
I don't know about this but I've seen people running some apps in full windows perfectly.

>>52348423
I didn't see windows resizing though, except for their own file manager which is purpose-built for this environment.

Windows seem to either be one set size, or fullscreen.
>>
>>52348618
Good point, I just noticed that but they claim to have re sizable windows though, not sure if it's for everything or some specific apps.
>>
>>52348183
Impressive
>>
>>52348776
You can resize all apps, but a bunch of them won't adapt to the new screen estate they have until you reboot them.
>>
>>52347615
Then what is the difference between RemixOS and just running Androidx86 on a Linux machine?
>>
Am I the only one that feels like RemixOS is super sketchy and some kind of grift or something?
>>
>>52351768
Remix has a GUI designed for desktop use. In theory anyway.

Also Remix is approved for/comes with Google Play. I didn't think Androidx86 did
>>
Why would I want that crap on my PC? I use Android only because there is nothing better, but there are tons of better OSes for PCs.

The solution to make Android useful for productivity is not to dumb down PCs. The solution is to stop dumbing down smartphones.
>>
>>52351903
>Google Play
So it gains tons of shitty smartphone apps and loses all real desktop applications. Brilliant!

So it's laggy and loaded with Google spyware? Why the hell would anyone want to "fuse" a mobile and desktop OS? They already tried that shit with Windows 8.
>>
>>52352275
Because it's nothing like Windows 8

You have a "start menu" and everything runs in a window
>>
>>52352299
>Because it's nothing like Windows 8
Yes it is. It's too dumbed down to be a good desktop OS because of the mobile components. The layout is not like Windows 8, but it is the same idea and has the same problems.

It is Linux, just locked down.

Can someone who knows what they're talking about tell me what kernel Android x86 uses, and if it has all the drivers the mainline Linux kernel has.
Or will driver support be very limited.

>>52347464
Vanilla Android isn't meant for mouse and keyboard thought.

>>52352525
Though the only real difference is that Remix has no libraries out of the box. If you can root it, you can linux it up.
>>
>>52348330
I haven't had any problems with NoChromo once I tell it to request the desktop version of the site instead of the mobile version.

>>52348776
Only some apps can be put into windows and resized. One of the biggest apps that can't is Hangouts. That's right, the biggest chat app on Android is still forced into fullscreen mode.

>>52352430
and more games.

>There is a version of Photoshop for Android
So you get a dumbed-down mobile PoS that is utterly useless for real work. Great.

Meanwhile Linux users are using REAL Photoshop through Wine.
>>
How dense are you people?
Of course this will be useless on normal desktops, but it's a godsend for tablets because normal android works like shit on bigger screens.
>>
>>52353085
>the Average Joe
I am not the average Joe. I do not care what they think. For people who are competent with technology, using a mobile OS on a desktop is totally pointless.

This is for morons. I'm not a moron, so I won't use it.
>>
>>52353087
>Meanwhile Linux users are using REAL Photoshop through Wine.
Have you tried using it? It doesn't actually work well enough to be used for real work, and it crashes all the time.

>>52353125
>For people who are competent with technology, using a mobile OS on a desktop is totally pointless.
I don't see it as a Windows or GNU/Linux replacement, but I'd love to have it on a USB drive, cheap compute stick etc.
>>

>I have to use an emulation layer to get Photoshop
wow, Linux is worse than I imagined

>>52353192
>Have you tried using it? It doesn't actually work well enough to be used for real work, and it crashes all the time.
I have. Some versions work badly, but I've found CS6 works pretty much flawlessly.
But if it doesn't work well enough, use a VM. With a real desktop OS, you can do things like nonchalantly fire up a VM for compatibility. Good luck doing that on Android.

match or surpass (a person or achievement), typically by imitation.


Doesn't WINE attempt to "mimic" Windows' APIs?

As such it is "emulating" them
