It seems that the project is quite advanced and when we have new news about the launch date we will give it, for now we have to wait ... Dan Leinir Turthra Jensen is the leader of the Shashlik projectAs you may know, he is a programmer for the Blue Systems company, a German company that is heavily involved in the development of KDE.

And that is a great step forward, not only for those who use distributions such as Ubuntu, openSUSE, Linux Mint, Debian, etc., which will be able to run all the apps available for Android, but it will be crucial for the development and competitiveness of mobile operating systems such as Ubuntu Touch, Tizen , Salifih and Firefox OS, all of them with Linux kernel and that will be able to have all the apps available for Android and this will no longer be a problem due to the lack of software ...
