Android smartphone owners that would like to transform their Android device into a Linux desktop computer might be interested in the new custom-built of Google’s Android operating system called MaruOS.
MaruOS has been specifically designed to pack in a complete desktop experience in the small form factor of your smartphone. But also allows your phone to run independently of your desktop so you can take those important calls whilst working on your big-screen simultaneously.
The creators of MaruOS this plane little more about the modified Android Lollipop operating system :
Maru is a new kind of computing experience. It gives you a single, context-aware device that makes personal computing really simple. And guess what? That device is your smartphone. Maru Mobile is built on the latest Android Lollipop. It ships with zero bloatware, so your phone runs snappy and has lots of free space for all your apps.
Maru Desktop brings you true multitasking and desktop productivity in a lightweight package. Peek under the hood and you’ll find rock-stable Debian Linux, so you can customize it to your heart’s content. Maru takes advantage of your HDMI screen to bring you multi-app, desktop-class productivity. Create a spreadsheet, perfect your slide deck, or spiffy up your resume. You’ll never believe you could get so much done with your “phone”.
Maru takes personal computing one step closer to closed-loop. Your hardware’s capabilities are shared across your mobile device and desktop so you don’t have to context-switch around so much. Say goodbye to coordinating your work amongst dozens of different devices.
