OPERATING SYSTEMS --
While 8.0 Oreo is the latest version of Google's Android operating system for mobile devices, the free software minded Replicant OS that derives itself from the Android Open-Source Project code-base has re-released their version 6.0.

Months after their first Replicant 6.0 release derived from Android 6.0, a new Replicant release is now available that expands the device support and incorporates other improvements.

The re-released Replicant 6.0 supports devices including the Galaxy Note, Galaxy Nexus, the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 while remaining true to being a free software OS.

This Replicant update has also been working on USSD support, USB WiFI adapter support, improved recovery, and more.
