Remix OS is a Hybrid OS for Mac and PC
Operating Systems in our era are optimized and have proved so excellent. But they haven’t got all features we want. Just like Windows, Mac, Android, iOS and other Linux based Operating Systems like Ubuntu. They all are great but have some specific or not great features at all. Windows is famous for being Universal, but there is a catch that we can’t use Apps like we do in Android ecosystem. iOS and Mac OS are from Apple, and they are not open source mean that they are limited to only the company’s hardware like iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks, Macs, respectively. Ubuntu and some Linux based OS’ have also some limited features. But there is a hybrid OS which will be a big competitor for these top notch OS’.
There was a project from Ex-Google employees. They have been working on an x86 based Android OS, which was specially developed for PC’s and Laptops, and I also posted that on my Blog that how to get those Android versions on your PC/laptop.

Now people from Android x86 project joined hands with people from a company named Jide. Jide presented their Surface clone running Android OS at CES 2015, and they got a little bit of attention. Now in CES 2016 they came up with a fully optimized and working OS and they are going to release that OS on 12th January 2016. Android x86 has too many problems with the PC and apps layout. Apps are not entirely optimized for use on, PC and they have some problems running in landscape mode.
Now Jide just changed the game with a partnership with Android x86 and made a hybrid OS called Remix OS. The beauty of this operating system is that it’s now fully optimized to run Android Apps, and they have Windows 10 inspired User Interface. Quick features:
It is a game changer, and it will change the way we use our PC’s or Laptops everyday.
It runs all Android Apps and has Google Play Store support
The OS can be dual booted with Windows and has excellent performance on PC’s or Laptops with good specs. The OS is compatible with all x86 based Intel and AMD processors. Jide is going to release that hybrid OS on 16-January-2016.
It’s Free. The OS is listed on the website for a price of $0 which mean that it’s coming for free.
You can also dual boot this OS on Windows and macOS but only with some tricks for now. I will share that method here soon. It can be installed on a USB too. You can also install Remix OS on a hard drive.
Minimum System Requirements are:
- USB 3.0 flash Drive that supports the FAT32 format, with a minimum capacity of 8GB and a recommended writing speed of 20MB/s.
