The remix OS is an android based OS that is geared for a desktop, allowing true multitasking, and movable and sizeable Windows a la Microsoft Windows (desktop). It’s kind of a cool take on an OS, and better yet someone who’s interested in trying it can get one dirt cheap.
The Remix Mini is a small box with a 1.2 GHz Allwinner ARM Cortex-A53 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, HDMI output, 10/100 Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.0. This Model is going for $20 plus shipping.
Jide will also offer an upgraded version for $40, this will include 2 gigs of ram, and 16 gigs of storage.
It’s still unknown if the concept will take off, but a $20 dollar desktop PC that has a heck of a lot more “oomph” than a Raspberry Pi is pretty intriguing.
