    All in all it is done great, although I would have added some little improvements. Sometimes (depending on the app running) the screen orientation changes, which is annoying on laptops / PCs, but there is an app for forcing always using vertical/landscape mode. Also on my Laptop (I didn't test it on other devices so far) the letters shown on the screen sometimes are shown kind of strange.. some letters are missing, some letters are printed incomplete and even sometimes there are no letters at all. But restarting the app or switching to another tab etc (all the things refreshing the screen) often works to get back the correct letters. Although there are some minor annoyances, I rate this project with 5 stars, because it is very easy to use, very stable and nearly full functional and in my case it worked well enough for my purposes.

    Stunning. Really! Not so much the newest Marshmallow, but Lollipop (esp. the 32 bit version) runs amazingly on my laptop, faster than on my beloved Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 tablet: Hardware for my Android x86 install: Lenovo T420s with 8 gigs memory 2 solid state drives (Android takes up 2nd one in entirety - 160g worth). Versions tried: Marshmallow - it runs from install usb, but when attempting to install grub to my ssd it fails. Lollipop 5.1.1 64bit version - grub installs flawlessly and the OS works a charm. Runs anything which does *NOT* require root privileges. Even when root is assigned, it does not give root. So I can't restore from my Titanium files. Lollipop 5.1.1 32bit version - This is a silver medal winner for me, as it runs *nearly* everything and *DOES* allow root / superuser privileges. Titanium works great, Adaway works great. Only drawbacks? Minor, but real. Words with Friends (my wife's favorite!) does not work. A newer version of Bejeweled (high def version) does not work.

    On my T410s Lenovo laptop the 64bit Android 6.0 rocked. I ran it from a 16gb usb stick, live. Booted no issues fairly quickly, logged into Google and all my Android phone apps appeared, no issues at all with Gmail, YouTube, etc., etc.. Big thanks for a fine release!
