FREE SOFTWARE --
The Android-x86 project has announced their fourth stable release of Android KitKat for Intel/AMD architectures and this may be their last release for this branch.

Android-x86 4.4-r4 addresses a hazi fonts issue with Mesa 10.5.9 for select GPUs, backports support from Android-x86 5 for UEFI ISO booting, removes an obsolete 2GB data.img limitation, and is powered by the Linux 4.0.9 kernel. The Linux 4.0.9 kernel should help those wanting to run Android-x86 on Microsoft's x86 Surface tablets.

More details on the Android-x86 4.4-r4 release today can be found via Android-x86.org. For those wanting something newer to consume than KitKat, there is also the Android-x86 5 development.
