DistroWatch.com: Android-x86


Last Update: 2017-08-26 01:22 UTC

Android-x86 is an unofficial initiative to port Google's Android mobile operating system to run on devices powered by Intel and AMD x86 processors, rather than RISC-based ARM chips. The project began as a series of patches to the Android source code to enable Android to run on various netbooks and ultra-mobile PCs, particularly the ASUS Eee PC.

Android x86 7.1 release candidate is the best verion of android x86 to date. It works perfectly on my laptop. Wifi, bluetooth, hardware buttons all work flawlessly. Video playback is much better now as well. It really is excellent. So much better than the previous versions would definitely recommend you give it a try.

É claro que esta distro não pode ser comparada a outras distros especializadas em desktop como Manjaro, Ubuntu ou Fedora, mas em minha opinião ela é uma excelente distro que abre um mundo de oportunidades a quem quiser se aventurar. Através dela podemos conhecer melhor o comportamento e funcionamento do sistema Android. Sua facilidade de instalação é comparada a de outras grandes distros. Eu utilizei por muito tempo em dual boot para jogar, funciona muito bem.
Recomendo conhecerem esta grande distro.

Marsmallow 7 rc is great (64-bit, lightning spped of its responses makes it a great experience, I am running it from an external hdd). Some apps won't work properly but those that do are superfast! Well done, guys!
