Bliss OS. Android for your x86 personal computer

The project is an Android fork that aims to bring the beauty and the power of the phone/tablet system to the modern desktop and laptop PC.

The ‘build’ and ‘alpha’ words should suffice to make you understand that it is absolutely not a software ready for everyday use. Better to abstain, especially if you don’t actually intend to develop – even just reporting any bugs in a correct and responsible way, with as much information as possible to replicate the problem.

The idea behind Bliss OS is great and could be better in the future, after a stable release. But, if you do it now, you get an operating system that has a desktop-style launcher with a taskbar and a start menu, and support for touchscreen and non-touch devices.

Bliss OS is an open-source OS, based on Android, that incorporates many customizations options and added security features with AOSP security updates are merged regularly. And it is available for just about any Chromebook, Windows/Linux PC or tablet released in the last 4 years.

Bliss OS lets the user choose between Desktop or Tablet UI, based on the launcher being used. You can even mix the two for a truly customized experience. Also the Bliss team added configurations for many gamepads and profiles for key mappers, allowing users to game like never before.

Bliss OS documentation can be found on the official docs site, while the development update posts can be found on the XDA thread or on the Telegram chat. If you also want to contribute towards this amazing open source project, you can do it on the official GitHub repository.
