In recent days, Android X86-based distributions are getting a lot of attention. Maybe the success of Android or maybe it is due to its official presentation at CES, I don't know, in any case not only does Remix OS exist but another distribution called PhoenixOS.
I really don't know whether to call it distribution but it is very similar since they have a linux kernel, a set of interfaces and servers like the graphical server, a file manager, a window manager, pre-installed applications, etc… We are going what has been a distribution, but of course, it is not GNU. And it seems that even though Android is considered a Free Software project, these versions are not so much.
Phoenix OS could also violate GPL licenses
We recently discovered that Remix OS violated several GPL and Apache licenses. In the case of Phoenix OS it is still not very clear but development is incipient still so possibly many licenses have not been corrected and like Remix OS, Phoenix OS also breaches them. However, the difference between one distribution and another is that Jide has stated that Remix OS is not Free Software so the breach is clear while Phoenix OS has not clearly stated what type of operating system it is.
In any case, do not forget that both Remix OS and Phonenix OS can only be used and install via USBie through the operation of the LiveCD, it cannot be installed on the hard drive but this will surely be something to be fixed quickly. Even so, from Linux Addicts we recommend that you choose to use a Gnu / Linux distribution and use these operating systems as a test mode, never for production computers.
