Default WindowsAndroid - Android on your computer

Anyways, it works quite well, there's a thread over on XDA on how to add playstore to it too. It has everything except root so far, and I'm sure root would work too once you put in the files for it.

It's quick/light on the system. It does crash sometimes . If it didn't crash, this would make getting a Windows tablet worth it. Have windows for research/typing papers and android for fun. Even though I can dual boot ubuntu, it still lacks things that windows can do for school/work.

IS THIS LEGIT?

First, to run all android apps would require some ARM emulation. Second, if real, it would be a huge project yet the website and documentation look like it took all of ten minutes to put together. Third, when installing, it set off my antivirus software.

Not really, Android-x86 is alive and well. Programming and Web Design are two very different fields, must be new and focused on the code. The website is clean according to VirusTotal, too bad the download is too large. Maybe you should upload the quarantined file to double-check.

I was using Avast and it reports a couple of trojans. I went ahead and uploaded the quarantined files and they came back clean according to 45 of 47 antivirus programs. So, I'll consider it a false positive. If the download wasn't too large to be scanned by Google, I probably wouldn't have worried so much.
