Saturday, April 13, 2019 - # # #
Android is the hottest mobile operating system from Google which uses Linux as a kernel, it is mostly used the operating system and has more mobile applications than another mobile operating system. It is free like most other Google services and Linux uses GPL license which is a free software license from free software foundation. Android x86 is based on google android and also provide full androids like experience on laptops, desktops, convertibles, and virtual environments. The aim of this project was to provide patches for Android to run as a desktop operating system but by the passage of time and new frequent releases of Android from Google made this a whole new Android desktop distro. There are many other clones of this distro and many desktop androids are based on this os because it is stable. They use Android x86 as a base of their desktop android and tweak it according to their need.
