    Anyone here using Android X86? What results have you had with it? I'm thinking about dual booting Android X86 and Windows 10 (Steam) on my gaming PC and just eliminate another box (my Fire TV). Are there games I should be worried about in regards to not working. Is the XBox 360 controller supported in the latest Android X86 builds?

    my dad works for nintendo.
    i use bluestacks... it's an android emulator, runs on windows
    however the new version (2.something) doesn't look as stable as the old one.. (crashing at boot, i need to restart it)
    it runs really well in the games anyway.. been playing clash of clans with it for a year

    I'm not sure why you would want Android on a desktop PC, you can do everything better on Windows anyway. Just put Kodi on it and use that for your media.

    Well dual booting just for the sake of playing some crappy freemium games seems like a lot of work. Wouldn't it be easier to use BlueStacks? Or just play the games on a phone?

    Thank you! I just want to condense my Android and PC game collections onto one box.

    I agree, it's not exactly smooth and I don't really see what people like so much about it, but people seem to like it, so eh. It probably does the job fine for most mobile games since they tend to be 2D and not very fast paced.

    Calling a program "horrible" just because it has you choose between installing additional apps (that you could probably easily get around or just delete 5 seconds later) or paying a $2/m subscription is rather silly.

    OP, don't forget about Genymotion. Just like with Bluestacks, you can use it without installing a new OS onto your PC.

    Remix is a "desktop" experience and this PC i plan to dual boot on is my gaming rig. I plan to make a live stick of Android X86 and then have either the OUYA or Android TV launcher running on top.

    I started using Andy last night. Anyone here have any luck using their XBox 360 or any other controller with this Android emulator?
