Android-x86 Open Source Project Announcement

Android-x86 Open Source Project Announcement

In 2009, I started the Android-x86 Open Source Project as a passion project. I am a computer engineer, a software developer and this is what gets me up in the morning. However over time, I began to see that this project had much greater potential than I had first thought. We had laid the foundation to spread the use of Android to as many of the common x86 platforms in the world as possible. 

I’m glad to announce an official partnership with Jide Technology, the creators of Remix OS, because I believe they can help accelerate us towards achieving our goals.

This partnership is a natural fit since we both strive to make Android PCs a reality. Remix OS seeks to create a familiar experience for Android users in a PC environment, and the Android-x86 Project has laid the foundation for this to happen. Together, Remix OS for PC provides a full Android PC experience.

I value this type of partnership, one in which we can push the boundaries of what is possible for the future of computing and fill a vital void in Android so that you can use it to create content as easily as you consume content.

The Android-x86 Project will continue to be an independent open source project. We will work closely with Jide Technology to push forward Android running on x86 PCs so that the experience and the technology advances together. Jide will also contribute to the x86 community.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank all the developers who have ever contributed to the Android-x86 Open Source Project for making this possible.
