Jide Technology has released Remix OS 2.0 as a free download available on January 12th designed to run on the majority of Intel and AMD devices such as PC and Mac. The company which was founded by three ex-Google employees has developed the OS thanks to a partnership with the Android-x86 project enabling it to run on almost any PC.
The OS currently runs on Lollipop, however it will receive an upgrade to Marshmallow in the very near future, and their other devices are due to receive the update towards the second half of January. The platform will come with access to the Google Play Services, meaning there will be no need to flash a GAPPS package. Remix offers a traditional desktop-like experience with an expected windowed app interface. Like many desktop OS it can be placed on a USB drive for a portable experience between shared computers.
