Who knew? Android doesn't play nicely with a 2nd display. However
investigation continues. Some say the internal display should be
turned off, before the outside screen will go. Watch this space.
Meanwhile some may like to read an interview with English as not the
primary language featuring Chih-Wei Huang, main man of Android-x86.
Runs on PC(x86).
Original Android runs on ARM.
Android - Teoreticaly could run on every present and future device,
PS4 and Xbox one included (in pure theory).
Is everytime better develop for only one OS (even with some platform
differences), that for bunch of them.
Mac OS or iOS are too closed and fixed on Apple device and its
unlikely to change it.
Linux market is realy fragmented and its development is relatively slow.
Android - is without doubt OS with faster development speed and it counts.
Android is open and free.
Today, when i can buy good living room pc for 200$ i realy dont wan to
pay next 100 bucks to Microsoft for crippled OEM licence, or 200$ for
retail (HW independed licence) .... > How many of users know you think
that tried Android-x86, at least through live distro and how many
installed it into physical computer? Do you have some stats about
I don't have the stats and I don't really care about that. Just
checked. The 4.4-RC1 release has 584,441 downloads and the 4.3-test
release has 1,365,182 downloads.
Are you in contact with Google? Do you know why Google
developing Android-x86 for desktops itself? Is affair of Microsoft or
something else? ChromeOS looks like duplicity.
I have no official contact window of Google. But I have many friends
in Google including the android team. I'll also contact Google android
engineers directly for issues clarification or patches submission. I
don't know Google's plan. But as you said, ChromeOS is probably the
right one for its desktop roadmap.
This is a common guess. < stop snipping
