PrimeOS is a complete Android operating system powered by the Androidx86 project. Which means you can use all the Android Apps on your computer. Play games such as PUBG, Fortnite and Candy Crush! No? Cool. People are interested in any Android operating system more than ever we have seen, remix OS was the high-tech effort but failed.

If you ask which OS you can find in mobiles, the answer is either Android or iOS (sorry Windows phone users). Out of these two, Android is insanely popular, and since it’s open source which means the code is public and anyone can build an operating system out of it is an amazing thing. Which made it possible for projects like Android-86 to fork AOSP android and turn them into something can run on computers. That’s the reason you don’t find any project to run iOS on computers. Apple company business model is different, and unlike Windows and Android, their OS (iOS and MAC) aren’t open source.
