RemixOS Discontinues the desktop product
« on: July 23, 2017, 11:44:15 pm »
A news item on the Distrowatch website says the RemixOS is discontinued.

Jide says they will be focusing on the Enterprise sector of industry, instead of the consumer sector.

Very sad, to hear this news.  I was looking forward to the Nougat Android version of Remix.

That is sad to hear. I hope somebody else picks up on the idea and runs with it.

I'm not so sad about it. I had RemixOS on my distrohopping laptop for quite awhile, and while I thought the concept was neat, the implementation was very clunky. That made it no fun to use, so after awhile I just wiped it of my laptop.

The last release of RemixOS worked very nicely for me, on my notebook computer. :-)

I'm kinda in the same headspace as Mike; nice concept, but things just didn't quite come together into a smooth-running, intuitive interface that allowed you to make use of elements other than a touchscreen. It could be managed, but... And the thumbs-up fades from view right there...
