VolksPC - Android and Debian at the same time

    The developers of MicroXWin - the Xorg kernel mode server - are busy with their new brainchild VolksPC.
    VolksPC is a computer on which you can run Android and Debian simultaneously, at full hardware speed, and switch between them with a hotkey. No emulation, no VNC, no state freezing: two complete systems work simultaneously.
    Systems are also completely independent of each other. You can unload Android and use only Debian, and vice versa.

    The video has not been edited in any way, it shows the real speed of launching and running applications.

    • SoC - Rockchip RK3066 ARM Cortex A9 CPU 1.4Ghz, Mali-400MP4 GPU
    • RAM - 1 GB DDR3
    • Memory - 16 GB NAND + SD / MMC / MS up to 32GB
    • Video Outputs - HDMI 1.3 and VGA
    • Connectivity - 10/100 Ethernet and 802.11 b / g / n Wi-Fi
    • USB - 4x USB 2.0 Host Ports

    The specifications are fairly standard, however, I would like more memory and RAM, given that 2 systems are running at the same time. Debian, however sad it may be, does not support hardware acceleration in X and hardware video decoding. Also, as can be seen from the video, a common file system is used for Android and Debian.

    It is assumed that such a computer may be convenient for users who need the multimedia capabilities of Android and the power of Linux-based applications.

    Unfortunately, there is no information on the timing of the release of the device, and MicroXWin itself is a proprietary development, so you should not expect fast ports of this project to other devices.
