Hunter's comment

Anbox (Android in a BOX) is like wine, but for andoid apps. It is a compatibility layer for Linux that allows to run android apps. It puts android apps into a cointainer like docker and then runs the android app like natively installed.

It runs AOSP based android ROM and is only available as a snap package. So, if you have an ubuntu based distribution, you have anbox ready for install. For all other distributions, snapcraft should be installed.

Since this is not an emulator or a virtual machine, it has direct access to hardware, therefore making it more native an friendly.

I'm sure your hunt is undervalued and it's right to get help to crawl up to the better ranking. Why ?, because i think it's "COOL".

This is a cool product, because this is not an android emulator as we experience on Windows. So, hardware acceleration is better. Maybe the learning curve becomes sharper, but Anbox is very useful.


How do I get help to climb up? Even after this is an influenced post, this is not shown to visitor on first sight.


because I am the type of influencer who wants to help cool hunting to get into the top 100, and I'm sure your hunt has entered the TOP 100 to get an upvote from Steemhunt.

I am so sorry because I can only help at the last moment. The rest is determined by the Steemhunt members.

Don't give up @bitbase
I am sure you are a good hunter too


Thanks for the help @calprut. I appreciate the help.

Linux is pushing boundaries. Sonner or later this will be the best desktop operating system.
