Remix OS is what Chrome OS should be

A little company called Jide is making something extraordinary: they are showing Google how Android should look and run on the desktop.

Remix OS is based on the Android-x86 project, and from there you’ve got all the advantages on Android combined with desktop-like features like multitasking and multiwindow support, shortcuts and complete mouse support (right click included) or a start menu and a system task bar.

Brilliant.

Google should buy Jide, because this is what the Android-Chrome OS merger should look like.
