Android-x86 and Remix OS projects enter partnership

Android logoThe leader of the Android-x86 project has just announced that he has entered a partnership with Jide Technology, the creators of the already famous Remix OS.

Remix OS rose to fame back in January when it captured a lot of attention with its interesting adoption of Android-x86, which is a vanilla implementation of the Android operating systems for the PC. Even if it's still being developed, Remix OS does a lot of things properly, and it managed to cover a lot of ground in a very short amount of time.

Android-x86 has been around for some time, and the project originally started more like a personal endeavor of Chih-Wei Huang. It's been through a few iterations already, but only now the market has noticed the awesome potential of this Linux distribution that can bring the Android experience to PC users.

Right from the start, the guys from Jide Technology acknowledged the immense contributions of Android-x86 to their own project, and it seems that it hasn't gone unnoticed.

"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," said the Android-x86 lead, Chih-Wei Huang.

Don't fret about the future of Android-x86, because it doesn't mean that things will change for the users of this particular Linux distribution. In fact, things will remain pretty much the same, but Chih-Wei Huang will help the guys from Jide to better implement the distro. In turn, Jide will submit patches to Android-x86, so it's a win-win situation.

You can still download the Android-x86 distro from Softpedia, along with Remix OS, if you want to see how they differ.
