      They are like all Android OS for smartphone, same kernel, only made to run on intel x86 processor instead of Arm processor. Since they use the same system and kernal, they have the same malware problems.

    The issue with these 2 OSs is that you need a PC thats not older than 5 years (recommendation) and they have to be Intel CPUs. For RemixOS at least it should be a i3 CPU.
    Me myself have a AMD hex core 3Ghz from 7 years ago and tried both OSs and there were a lot of install crashes and stability issues before it kinda not really worked. 5 years for a desktop is NOT old. Old desktop means not able to run windows 7. The strange thing is these android OSs are based on linux and linux runs on old desktops.

      In today’s planned obsolete world, anything that is 2 years old is considered old. I think it has more to do with the hardware than software. Most probably it is compatible with popular hardwares such as Intel, Nvidia and etc.

    I have Android Os running on a few computers aged 7 to 14 years, so they are definitely old.
    And, they run well and I hardly have a complaint about Remix, Lineage, Android or Phoenix. But, I found that you need time to get to know each Android OS as they differ in how well they work with different installed apks.
    As all my old computers are x86, I can’t say anything about computers which are using AMD and whether these Android systems will work with them.

    is RemixOS is really lightweight? Are there any other Android OS lighter than RemixOS?? It’s still slow on my laptop, really slow. Or maybe it’s just my laptop cause its really old, it’s about more than 10 years old.
