About how useful an Android-x86 system can be for the average computer user

A GREAT DISCOVERY
This morning I discovered (once again) how useful an Android-x86 system can be. As a matter of fact it can do everything the average computer user needs to do! I.e. you can browse the Internet with different browsers (for example Google Chrome), easily check your mail with the app Gmail or other apps, watch YouTube movies with the YouTube app, handle Facebook with the Facebook app, edit your photos with PicsArt Photo Studio and manage all kinds of documents with QuickOffice...

RaspArch :: Run Arch Linux on your Raspberry Pi 2

Posted 04-14-2015 at 12:20 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Raspberry Pi model B was made in February 2015. It has a 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU and 1GB RAM. Read more…
