The first alpha release of Remix OS 2.0 – which we talked about a few days ago – is now officially released. It’s clearly an alpha, though, so don’t try to use this on any important machines. I have been unable to get it to work – I just get “checking media fail” upon boot – but others are reporting it works, so I guess your mileage may vary.
That being said – I’d be a little weary of the EULA. It seems like it contains some regular Chinese boilerplate stuff (other Chinese companies are using the same boilerplate stuff, such as Xiaomi), which sounds incredibly heavy-handed to us. Not sure what to make of this just yet – maybe the company will clarify this one.
This is a laptop that I purchased several years ago, exactly because it was booting Ubuntu flawlessly. However, I also got this error, and never got beyond this. On a freshly created VM, it seems to boot further, but on the “breathing” Remix OS logo, it seems to stay stucked there forever.
I got the same result on VirtualBox. It got stuck on the logo.
All my laptops are 32 bits so I am out of luck to test it on real hardware
is what concerns me as well, actually remixos is a closed source os from china. If they release sources it would be ok to use, but not this way. There could be (and most likely is) anything in there…
