Remix OS is an Android-based operating system that’s designed to make Android feel more like Windows. It has a taskbar, support for viewing multiple apps at the same time, and other enhancements.
Remix OS becomes more and more popular. In addition to the company that created and launched the tablet this system (Jide) other manufacturers also introduce a device running Remix OS with their offer: eg Cube and Teclast. The Jide company is now readying a Kickstarter campaign for the Jide Remix Mini, a small box much like a Chromebox that runs the Remix OS. It is aimed at those wanting a cheap system in a tiny form that becomes a desktop system with a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. The Jide Remix Mini is a tiny desktop computer or TV box that will sell for about $30. Jide will provide a Remix Mini to all backers, starting at $20.

Jide is also positioning Remix OS as more of a desktop-style operating system and the Remix Mini as more of a cheap, low-power desktop computer than as a TV box designed for streaming video from YouTube and Netflix (although you can certainly use it as a video streamer). The Remix Mini is expected to ship with Remix OS 1.5.
