Some say this is what Chrome OS from Google should look like. It’s easier to use, it looks familiar and provides full support for Android apps from the Google Play store.
Jide, the company behind Remix OS, has announced that it’ll be releasing an x86 version (an older version based on 32-bit architecture) of Remix OS as a free global download.
According to Jide, Remix OS might completely eliminate the need of owning a hardware for a personal computer. It would be more like plug and play system because Remix OS can be stored on something as small as a USB stick and then just plugged into any old hardware. Minimum requirements for the OS are a USB 3.0 flash drive that supports the FAT32 format with a minimum capacity of 8GB (and a recommended writing speed of 20MB/s) and a PC that supports booting from a USB.
That means the time has come to take out any Intel or AMD-based x86 hardware gathering dust in a cupboard.
Currently, Remix OS 2.0 is based on Android Lollipop, However, Jide is planning to upgrade the Remix OS to Android M or Android Marshmallow in the near future.
