Geeky, Winter, Android, Android for PC, RemixOS

Evil.

Evil.

The region got hit with a pretty decent snowfall. Of course the snow blower wouldnโ€™t startโ€ฆ. so both of use are feeling the pain of multiple snow removals. Ugh. Looks nice outside though.

I mentioned before trying to get RemixOS working on my older PC. It was a gong show. A time sucking gong show. So they are at BETA nowโ€ฆ which means it really should be getting close to a release but I still canโ€™t get it to run. Iโ€™m pretty sure it is a video driver issue. Iโ€™ve tried about five different video cards (like I did for Alpha) and the OS boots, gets to the โ€ Android x86 lineโ€ then the dreaded black screen of fail. The install to Hard Drive method got it this farโ€ฆ Meh.

What irritates me is they are targeting this OS for legacy computers but seems to fail on a ton of older video cards. โ€œOld dog, new tricks. Who said you canโ€™t teach an old dog new tricks? Remix OS for PC allows you to experience Remix OS on a vast array of existing Intel-based PCs already out in the world.โ€ I also wonder if AMD is even supported? Oh well. I noticed that the Android-x86 Open Source Project has partnered with RemixOS (Jide Technology) so this is promising. Iโ€™ve had better luck with Android x86 distros than Remix. Wait and see I guess. Ho-hum.

World of Tanks (PS4) is a lot of fun.
