How is this for an Idea?

Postby zlm1229 » Wed Apr 18, 2018 11:28 pm

Ok so this idea is very far from being a reality but....
What if ROS could run Android Apps? In concept its not to hard to imagine, create a subsystem based on AOSP, download an APK, select compatibility mode, Android Nougat, presto, a Windows like OS running Android Apps.
I'm not saying it would easy, or that they SHOULD do it, I'm just posting an opinion and seeing peoples thought.

Why? There's already an OS that runs Android apps.

Still if the idea of bolting Android on to ReactOS as a subsystem fascinates you, then you can design and write the code to do it. That's the advantage of free open source software (FOSS).

Apparently this program allows you to run Android apps on Windows. See if it works In ROS?

Hi, I'm pretty sure that is an emulator, I think zlm meant native running. Maybe.

It's as much an emulator as Dalvik/ART is one. Andoid APKs are Java crap and runs in there as native as possible :P

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

And i think you might think that ReactOS is a unix. IT IS NOT. >.<
