You Can Now Run Android On Your Windows PC Using Jide's Remix OS

Who else thought that the Jide in question is a Yoruba man? I did! But it is actually co-founded by 3 ex-Googlers who look nothing like Yoruba men.

Jide’s Remix OS is a forked version of Android (Remix OS 2.0 is based on Android Lollipop 5.1) that can run on Windows, it is what the Chrome OS should have been.

The Remix OS looks a lot more like Windows than it does Android, for one, you have your start menu,

You can swipe in from the right side to view your notification tray. Most importantly, you can run android apps on your Windows PC – from Instagram to Microsoft Word to Facebook to Modern Combat 5 everything works well with the Remix OS.

To enjoy the experience of having an Android on your laptop, just head over to their website and download the system image using this link, it is about 692MB in size. The website says it is compatible with “most computers in the world powered by x86 chipsets,” and it seems to require a 64-bit CPU.
You can either run it using a USB stick (You’ll need at least an 8GB USB 3.0 flash drive with a recommended write speed of 20MB/s along with a PC with a “USB legacy” boot option.) or make a permanent partition on your computer.
Like I said, this is what the Chrome OS should have been.

    I’ve already partitioned my hard drive for. Ubuntu now I want to partition it for jide. Maybe I should just get a USB instead. The crazy things tech makes us do…… Anyways I totally agree with you, the only reason I’m not using a chrome powered laptop now is that, stand alone “off internet” apps are not available and it’s no recluse that in a country like Nigeria, it would make for a very insipid experience. So JIDE, here I come, funny that that’s my name too.
