Yet needs some polishment, but it's going into the right path.

I agree with the other reviews. Remix OS looks promising, but there's still a lot of work to be done for this to be an everyday distro. For me, I have noticed there are occasional crashes and freezes, usually without any warning. It also seems like Remix would work much better on machines with SSD's, rather than hard drives. I have noticed a lot of disk thrashing with the old hard drive I am using it on.
The installer and updaters both need some work, wifi is definitely very spotty, at least with cheap USB adapter I am using on my desktop. Wired Ethernet, however, seemed to have no issues. Another plus is that just about everything from the play store seems to work, although I didn't test very extensively. Lately, though, I've been having some trouble with the desktop. I had all my icons disappear, come back a few reboots later, and now have mysteriously arranged themselves onto three separate pages (like on a smartphone) that I can swipe through.
Anyway, I still hope that work continues on Remix OS and the bugs get fixed, because there is a ton of great software available for Android, and it really looks nice on a bigger screen.
