Remix OS: China's take on an Android operating system – but for PCs
Deep dive Jide’s Remix OS is Android for a desktop or tablet OS: with multitasking, overlapping windows and the shortcut conveniences you need for productivity-style work.
And the firmware tweaks to make it run well on x86 processors. I’ve seen what the next billion internet users will be running.
Jide was founded by three Google veterans and draws heavily on the Android-x86 project, a heroic solo effort by Chinese engineer Chih-Wei Huang, that he began seven years ago. The founders moved to Beijing to be close the Huang and China’s supply chains.
