    Softpedia 170429: "After announcing the availability of new builds of his AndEX Nougat 7.1.1 Android-x86 fork that lets users run Android 7.1.1 on their PCs, now Arne Exton released a custom build of Raspberry Pi Foundation's Raspbian PIXEL image.

    Arne Exton's custom Debian Raspberry Pi PIXEL Build 170425 is here to replace version 161223, which was the project's first ever release. The new build ships with NetworkManager for easy configuration of wired and wireless connections, as well as Refracta tools, which lets users install the operating system on their PCs or Macs.

    Refracta tools makes the installation of this custom Raspbian PIXEL image easier for all users, which will be able to not only install the OS on the disk drive of their PCs but also to create their own remix of Raspberry Pi Foundation's Raspbian PIXEL image."
