Smile Phoenix OS....Android for x86


Are there any Phoenix OS http://www.phoenixos.com/en_US/ users out there? I like being able to run my favorite android apps on a laptop. Especially since it has a much bigger screen and is much faster than any android device I've ever used. Dual booting with windows is very easy. You just download the installer for window and it automatically does the hard work of installing. they also have live cds

I have not tried Android x86 yet. But Phoenix is based on it. Judging from screenshots I'd say Phoenix OS is a little more polished up.

It looks nice - the next time I have a fast internet connection I think I'll give it a shot and see if it can replace my shoddy Android-x86 4 and 6 VMs. They even go through the effort of making it easy for folks who don't know 32-bit from 64-bit - although I'd imagine there's not too many of them who would be tinkering around with odd OSes
