Remix OS is a custom version of Android that can run on your PC/Notebook and it feels like a desktop OS with proper multitasking support and a UI optimized for the mouse and keyboard. The Remix OS is created by Jide Technology, a company formed by a trio of former Google employees.
Remix OS is based on Android-x86, an unofficial open-source project that ports Android to run on standard PC hardware. Remix OS adds a windowing system, turning that operating system into something that you might actually want to run on a PC. Like typical Linux distributions, you can put Remix OS on a USB drive and boot from it, running entirely from that USB drive and even saving your settings and files to it. So you could take Remix OS everywhere—just like a Linux live system.
