Last month was word of Android-x86 joining the company behind Remix OS, an Android-based OS designed for PCs and laptops. Out now is the Remix OS Beta that's leveraging the Android-x86 project.
The Android-x86 project site posted the brief message, "Remix OS for PC - Beta version built on Android-x86 project is available for download." This beta version of Remix OS is available for free download from Jide.com, the company behind Remix OS.
Unlike with PCs, tablets, and smartphones, there likely won't be a short list of operating systems that dominate the entire IoT market.

This list of eight operating systems shows the wide variety of choices and where they are likely to be used.
After 10 years of development was released the new major release of ReactOS, this event was highlighted in the most biggest tech resources. But I’m not interested in just talk about release notes from “crazy Russian developers”, more interested is technical opportunities and possibilities.
Which architecture use React OS now, which hardware are supported, why users and developers might find it interesting, the degree of compatibility with Microsoft Windows? Is there a Windows-based copy with Unix-style? For these and other questions you can find the answers in this article (or ask new questions in comments).
RebeccaBlackOS offers an interesting window into where the Linux desktop might be headed. The developers behind the scenes working on Wayland seem to be making far better progress than the developers working on the Wayland fork Mir. Ubuntu designers have not yet been able to get Mir working with any desktop environment. The last few Ubuntu releases have bypassed the planned Mir debute.
RBOS gives you enough stability to play around with a variety of user interfaces. It's encouraging that KDE and Gnome 3 shells work so well already on Wayland. The Enlightenment desktop is one of the newest innovations available on several Linux distros, so it should continue to attract interest running so well on Wayland.
