Android 4.2.2 x86

The Android open source project has been porting Android for x86 hardware. To run you need a laptop with compatible hardware. The HCL is a little sketchy, but works fine on my
Acer aspire 5734Z laptop, Intel GMA4500 Graphics Chipset and Intel T4500 dual core processor. More install details at projects homepage below:

Android-x86 - Porting Android to x86

The good news is that some Android apps work. However some apps will insist on using screen rotation (ideal for tablet or phone) but not so useful for laptop hardware. Screen rotation can be disabled but some apps will only run in portrait mode not landscape.

You need a spare primary partition and can be formatted as ext2/3 or vfat or ntfs. Multi boot with Windows/Android/Linux/FreeBSD is also possible if you use grub2 from a linux partition.

Manjaro Deepin

My new Manjaro Deepin desktop.
The deepin desktop has its own deepin dock (bottom) and on the right is cairo dock. Deepin desktop has independent wallpapers for each desktop, icons are allowed on the desktop and all in all its pretty fast.
