Doing it right -> Phoenix OS and Remix OS
#1
Hi fellow ex-backers,

I was quite happy to read following message from the creator of Android-X86:

Source -> https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/...rzO0Qa3w4U

Quote:Hi all, 
As you may have read the announcement on both sites, 
Android-x86 partners with Remix OS now. 

http://www.android-x86.org/changelog/partnership 
http://www.jide.com/en/remixos-for-pc/announcement 

For those who are curious, let me give more details 
why and how we make the partnership. 


Jide Technology, the creator of Remix OS, has contacted 
me in about Sep 2015 for the cooperation. 
In the early Nov 2015, one month after Android-x86 5.1-rc1 
released, they sent me a preview iso of Remix OS for PC 
based on the 5.1-rc1. I was surprised they made it so quickly. 

In the mid Nov 2015, two co-founders of Jide met me 
at Taipei to exchange more ideas about the cooperation. 
Later in the end of Nov when I visited Beijing, 
I was invited to Jide's office to give a talk to the RD team. 
I was surprised they have a so big, smart and energetic team. 
After that, Jide engineers joined the devel group 
to co-work with other developers. They have submitted 
some valuable patches to the Android-x86 codebase. 

Last week after the CNY holidays, I was invited to Jide office 
again. During the meetings in the 4 days, we reached a very 
detailed cooperation plan including new designed website, 
prioritized working items and marketing promotion. 
Moreover, we see the same vision that Android will 
enter or even dominate the PC desktop in the future. 
We hope to make it happen as quicker as possible. 
We agreed to announce the partnership on MWC 2016. 

Jide Technology will continue to contribute improvements of 
Remix OS under the x86 BSP level, say, the kernel and hals. 
Later I'll post the detailed tasks to the devel group 
so other developers can follow and co-work together. 


Besides, I was also invited to visit Chaozhuo Technology, 
the creator of Phoenix OS(x86) in Beijing. 
Though they are a smaller group, they also show 
sincere intention to work with the community 
to improve Android UX on the desktop. 
I think they will also make good contributions in the future. 


What I hope to say is the Jide and Chaozhuo Technology 
shows a very good example how the commercial companies 
can co-work and contribute an open source project 
like Android-x86. 
I believe they will move forward this project to a totally 
different level than before in the near future. 


Let's make it!

After all Mr. Price was maybe the first one who had the idea of a commercial Android for PC distribution, but it is ironic that he failed so dramatically and others get the fruits of success.

Often history shows us that people, which are deceptive and ruthless, mostly win.

Apparently these attributes combined with incompetence luckily don`t succeed.

Poor Mr. Price... everything lost except a few thousand bugs, which are probably already spent.

New Android OS review for PCs of XDA.

Of course Console OS is not even mentioned ;-)

Of course Console OS isn't mentioned. Outside of Christopher Price's dream world, it's not even close to a viable competitor. 

The first alpha releases of both Remix and Phoenix pack more features than Christopher would ever be able to create, if he actually started to learn to code from this moment forward. 

He's the Android on x86 equivalent of an XDA ROM smartphone "developer" who takes code from 50 different places but does no legitimate work himself.

I finally got around to installing Remix Alpha under Windows on my Asus T200.  No-Grub (that I had to deal with), no repartitions; using the tool here; 
http://forum.xda-developers.com/android/...i-t3222483

Just got the Play Store installed. 

OMG, this is awesome!  I 'd been happy with AMI DUOS, but this is pure butter.  Sleeps and wakes perfectly, which was always an issue with DUOS.  Running Mini Motor Racer flawlessly - IN A WINDOW!   Minecraft is rendering like it does on my gaming PC.  So excited.  And impressed.  Well done android-x86.org/Remix!

   

And a simple restart and I'm back in Windows.  It's all I ever wanted!

Can't wait until tomorrow.  They are supposed to be releasing a Beta on March 1st.

Price wasn't even close to the first in anything, just a wannabe, blood suckin, scammer....

Asus was working on it in 2013, ask Chih-Wei who works for Asus and
founded the android-x86.org as a FOSS project in 2009, eventually creating the
BSP for x86 that has since been used successfully by Remix OS / Phoenix OS and
other independent commercial developers.

@Sravan - We just don't see it that way. By not breaking Android APIs, we can get to Marshmallow faster, and be on a level playing field with where the OEMs are wanting us to be. It will also give us comparative advantage.
We appreciate the feedback, but we feel that sticking with Marshmallow's multitasking APIs and multi-app support is a better path, and will make it easier to implement our original vision. It may be a rougher road initially, but we stand by the call.

"By not breaking Android APIs, we can get to Marshmallow faster, and be on a level playing field with where the OEMs are wanting us to be. It will also give us comparative advantage."

android-x86 made marshmallow base available in Oct. 2015 while you were still figuring out what to do with
your non-existent Lollipop for your backers...

they released their first test build in Dec., while you were forking their Lollipop and causing them to suspend development
on it, they have since updated their marshmallow base twice and also released a newer marshmallow test build in Feb.


and you, who hasn't done NOTHING development wise, are going to come out with marshmallow and "level the
playing field"......I suppose you think Jide and others have been sitting around since Oct. "blogging on social media"
like you do waiting for someone else to do it.....good luck with that,....you never had any OEMs and never will...

Talk is cheap....as some asked in 2014....show us YOUR code....won't ever happen...!!!
