I've read this question, and of course, there, the answer was "you can't, because the architecture is different."

But that's not necessarily the case anymore. Many Android devices, like mine, now have x86 processors and also the specs to run Windows. Thanks to Remix OS and Android x86, many x86 desktop computers (and tablets, etc.) now run Android.

So, is there any way to virtualize Windows on Android if you have an x86 device?

  • @Izzy Is performance significantly better than emulating PC on ARM? (QEMU?) – Revetahw says Reinstate Monica Jun 25 '16 at 11:23
  • You're asking me? Please read the first two words of my previous comments :) – Izzy Jun 25 '16 at 11:24
  • @Izzy Haha... Yeah, alright. Maybe someone else knows. – Revetahw says Reinstate Monica Jun 25 '16 at 11:24
