Remix OS is a customized version of Android designed to look and feel like a desktop operating system. You can use it to run just about any Android app, but there's a desktop, a taskbar, and support for viewing multiple apps at once in windows that you can resize and reposition on the screen.

Here are some links that you may be interested in:

You can find the LPX Show in iTunes, on Stitcher, and just about anywhere else you get your podcasts. If you like the show, leave a review (or I guess you can do that even if you don't like it...)

Intel's is expanding its line of Compute Stick mini-PCs in 2016, so I decided to do a state-of-the-stick episode of LPX, featuring interviews with Intel's marketing manager for the lineup and Ian Morrison, an Australian developer who has been working to port Ubuntu and other open source software to run on Intel's tiny desktop computers.

Two people hoping to change the way we use computers.

Nitro Duo: two computers in one tiny case

Shane Lewis wanted a smartphone that could run Android apps... but which could also work as a full-fledged Windows desktop computer when attached to a docking station. And since there was nobody selling a phone that met that description, he decided to build his own.

EOMA68 Libre Laptop: a vision for an upgradeable future

Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton has a vision for a future where computers are easy to upgrade. Buy a laptop, tablet, or desktop today and if you want a faster processor, more memory, or other improvements in a few years all you need to do is pop out a card and insert a $50 replacement.
