FydeOS is a fork (copy) of Chrome OS which is the opensource operating system used by Chromebooks.

FydeOS runs Google (and other web based) cloud apps, as well as Android applications.

It originally came from another older system called FlintOS, which was recently bought by a company called Neverware, who also has a similar commercial product called Cloudready (but it lacks android support).

FydeOS was designed for theeducation market in China, The web site is in Chinese, but can be translated to english (or other languages) by google translate.

Here are the steps to install and use:

It works well on newer laptops with better graphics, and USB support.

First you download FydeOs, then burn it to a USB stick with the directions that they provide.

(You use a utility called Etcher to flash the OS to a USB.

stick) [-1] Then you can boot your laptop with the USB key.

(You might have to change the boot order in your laptop bios).

The first time you run it, the default language is Chinese, so you have to click on the international icon (on the left) and change the language to English.

After that the setup/config is pretty easy.

The OS is fast and small enough to run from the USB key, so you don't have to install it on a hard drive.

Its also safer to run it from the USB stick, since it is still somewhat experimental.

I didn't run into any bugs that got in the way, and it performed well for me.

You may have to resize the partition on the USB key called “state” if you need more space (You can use the gparted utility for that), but all your settings and data will be stored on the key for future sessions.

I used a 32 GB USB key and it was plenty.

Also USB 3.0 will be even better than 2.0 if your machine supports it.

There is also a linux development environment option, but I didn’t try installing or testing it yet.

The developers had to change the default browser search page to MS Bing, to avoid problems with Google.

But you can change it back to search on Google, if you prefer.

I like the idea of being able to run Chrome OS on my own hardware, instead of having to buy a Chromebook, and not all of them support Android.

With this O, you could run Linux, ChromeOS/Google cloud, Android and even windows if you have it, all on the same PC!

Running chrome OS is pretty easy and self explanatory.

If you have never used it before, there are many tutorials available.

If you want to run Android apps, you can manually install the.apk file in the ChromeOS session.

Or you can install the Google Play store using a launcher called Nova.

Actually, the play store is already installed, but Nova will allow you to put it on the menu for easy access.

You can also install other android app stores like "Aptoide"[0] .

Then you can pin any apps to the dock at the bottom of the screen, by right clicking and chose to “pin”,
