The Android-x86 open-source project is partnering up with Jide Technology, the company behind Remix OS.

If you are unfamiliar with Jide's Remix OS, it's based on Android and is an operating system designed for PCs and laptops. It's been getting a lot of attention as of recently and the Remix OS 2.0 release is shaping up to be quite interesting.

Android-x86 project founder Chih-Wei Huang has announced that the project is officially partnering with Jide Technology. The new post at explains:
I’m glad to announce an official partnership with Jide Technology, the creators of Remix OS, because I believe they can help accelerate us towards achieving our goals.

This partnership is a natural fit since we both strive to make Android PCs a reality. Remix OS seeks to create a familiar experience for Android users in a PC environment, and the Android-x86 Project has laid the foundation for this to happen. Together, Remix OS for PC provides a full Android PC experience.

I value this type of partnership, one in which we can push the boundaries of what is possible for the future of computing and fill a vital void in Android so that you can use it to create content as easily as you consume content.

The Android-x86 Project will continue to be an independent open source project. We will work closely with Jide Technology to push forward Android running on x86 PCs so that the experience and the technology advances together. Jide will also contribute to the x86 community.
