I’m going to be experimenting with Android-x86 in a VM to see what all it can do – according to DistroWatch, it’s a computer compatible port of the Android OS – which could mean that it will give me access to using Android software from inside a VM – would be incredibly useful in playing mobile games (go figure).  Here’s what Distrowatch has to say about it:

Android-x86 is an unofficial initiative to port Google’s Android mobile operating system to run on devices powered by Intel and AMD x86 processors, rather than RISC-based ARM chips. The project began as a series of patches to the Android source code to enable Android to run on various netbooks and ultra-mobile PCs, particularly the ASUS Eee PC.


Or not, because it didn’t load under Boxes.  Don’t feel like looking into why – so we’re going to move on to another distribution – chosen semi-randomly from DistroWatch.
