Remix OS is custom operating system built on Android which can be installed on a desktop computer as a secondary operating system, or primary if u prefer. In simple words, desktop version of Android. Some people confuse it with an emulator like droid4x, but it is a full operating system. As I said build upon Android it provides all functionality of an Android device like a smartphone or tablet in a PC environment adding keyboard, mouse support. The remarkable feature of this custom OS is the addition of windows on Android platform, yes windows just like Microsoft Windows windows. You can get access to Play Store and experience all the apps of Android on desktop along with other Android features.

Remix OS is a great idea of bring the mobile Android version to desktop but still needs more shining as it lacks many features of a desktop OS like Windows. It may be useful in special circumstances and for having fun but as I focused in the first para about installing it as secondary OS is the best option. It maybe best for having a OS backed in a USB and can be accessed anywhere at friend’s computer or office. Other best use will be reviving an old computer which cannot run latest windows with this fluid and light weight OS.
