I'm volunteer at a krinloop.. (fixing PC's.. selling them cheap)
I can only install windowz if the PC has a license (or if someone donates licenses)
-Most PC have old license aka old version of windows (XP:most / Vista / Win7:rarely )
So, I'm forced to install Linux or leave the harddisk blank (doesn't sell well)
-Most people have never heard of Linux
But RemixOs/Android: everyone has played with Android.. This will be a great alternative
I only hope..the at p4 support..because that comes in the most
I have been a fan of X86 Android for a while. As you may already know, like LiveCDs for Linux Distros, X86 will work in the complete absence of a hard drive. So I assume this Remix OS spin will as well. Of course, it is faster installed to a drive.
Live CDs turned me in to a distro junkie for a time. I must have burned 100's of discs. Thank goodness for UNetBootin.
Anyway, I'll be looking forward to trying this on the 12th. If you are not familiar with the X86 Android project, have a look here. Results vary by hardware, but it works well generally.
BTW A tip of the hat to you, that is a nice thing you are doing. Reclaiming older PCs for those on a budget, is a noble effort. Not to mention the good done by keeping some more stuff out of the landfills.
I am going to give it a shot tonight. I have enjoyed Remix OS on the S95. As compared to Android 5.1 as a desktop, there are some very nice features. Remix should be very fast on older X86 gear. I could see how it would bring purpose to some older hardware.
I am looking forward to hearing if it helps your krinloop efforts.
I am curious. What distribution do you usually install on the repurposed PCs?
I really like the way, from Settings/Apps, you can select an app to run windowed or fullscreen. Apps like YouTube and Hulu look very good and work well when set to fullscreen. There is a lot of potential in Remix OS.
I am becoming a bit of a Remix OS fan, can you tell?
