With desktop operating systems we can do everything and they are the best option for computers, but these systems could still improve a little more. How? Well, among other things, becoming compatible with mobile applications. Companies like Microsoft and Apple are already working (or getting) on it, but what if what we want is a mobile operating system on our PC? For that there are projects like Android-x86 or AndEX, a younger project based on the first.
AndEX Pie 9.0 is now available and it comes with many applications installed by default, all of them popular, such as Firefox or Clash of Clans. And speaking of the installed applications we have to talk about a small problem: Google Apps are not available, something that they are in Android-x86. It does not even have the Google Play Store, but it does have the store installed by default Aptoide, an alternative store where all the apps are free and where we will find some that Google does not accept in its official store.
AndEX Pie 9.0 includes Aptoide as an app store
AndEX Foot can be installed and operated on virtually any computer, something that we can also do by dualboot. It can also be run as Live USB or installed on a USB stick. The problem is that to install it as native, you have to manually tweak GRUB, something that, for security reasons, we do not recommend to less-expert users. You have the installation notes here!.
AndEX Pie 9.0 is not free. It is priced at $ 9. Personally, having tested the version on which it is based, I would recommend, before buying it, make sure that there is a possibility of return. I comment on this because it is likely that some applications will not open and if these are the ones you need the most, your AndEX Pie will not be of much use to you. Among those that failed me when I installed Android-x86 we have Kodi and Movistar +.
If you are interested in buying it and trying it, do not hesitate to leave your experiences in the comments.
