Android-x86 is a project which aims to make a flavour of Android that is suitable to run natively on any regular x86-based desktop computer. It might therefore be a good option to use Android-x86 in a virtual machine you want to run Android apps on Linux, and find other options such as Anbox to either not work with your app of choice or you simply do not meet the system requirements to run Anbox.
This post will show you how to set up an Android-x86 virtual machine on Linux using Virt-Manager, a GUI frontend for QEMU, and configuring it for optimal performance and coolness.
Nowadays, the internet is mainly concentrated to large, centralised social media services. You have Discord rather than IRC, Reddit rather than forums, Twitter rather than (micro)blogs, etc. And I personally find that to be quite sad.
One of the reasons I find Linux to be largely superior over Windows is its use of package managers. For a Windows user, this might seem like a nit-pick when comparing the two operating systems but it really is a game changer. The implementation of package managers varies between different families of Linux distributions, and I'm writing with Arch Linux's package manager
pacman in mind, but the idea and core concept is the same no matter the distro.
I realise I need to make more clickbaity, more digestible blog posts so I will now expand into the territory of Top 5 lists. This is how you do it right?
The Linux terminal is an extremely powerful tool, allowing you to access and control your entire system just by typing commands. In addition, there exists a seemingly infinite amount of command-line utilities. What characterises all of these are just how lightweight they are, while not compromising in its power and flexibility.
When I first tried out Linux, one of the things that stood out to me was its file structure. It is structured in a completely different way to Windows, and I believe that when you understand it you can see how it clearly is a superior way of structuring things.
As I've switched from the dumpster fire that is the Windows operating system, I've begun going about my way of managing my Linux system in a very particular way. These guidelines, or rules, have purely existed as ideas in my mind, and I haven't thought about writing them down until now.
