Samsung has released a beta version of ‘Linux on DeX’.
Thanks to Exagear software I am able to run x86 software on my Samsung Galaxy Note 9 though Linux on DeX.
Technically there is the option to run a crappy version of Exagear on Android, but it is much more effective and has far greater software compatability when run in Linux on DeX (firstly because it can run x86 Linux apps when run in LoD, unlike the Android version of Exagear).
At the moment, the Exagear software requires you to fake hardware ID’s to activate the software, meaning that theoretically, one person could activate it and share it for free on the web… :\
This means that I can install steam and other software on my phone, so when someone asks the innevitable ‘But can it run Crysis??’ Now I can respond with, yes my phone can!
The performance is great so far, many apps are running faster than they do on the Raspberry Pi 3.
Do you use Linux on DeX?
If so what is your experience like so far?
Also even if not, is this something that you could see being useful for you?
My device is the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage model.
