Android-x86 KitKat 4.4.4 Exton build version 8 can run live (from CD) on all "normal" computers (laptops), for example on Acer (Aspire), HP, Samsung, Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo, Thinkpad, Fujitsu, Panasonic and Ausus laptops. You can also very easy install the system to your hard drive or/and a USB stick and install new apps. You can also install new apps while running the system live. Google Play Store is preinstalled so you can just make your choices...
This version (version 8) replaces all my previous (7) Android-x86 4.4.4 KitKat builds. In version 8 I've added GAPPS. I.e. Google Play Services, Google Play Store, Maps, and YouTube and more apps (for example Bluetooth File Transfer), Spotify and WPS Office. Everything just works.
Install to hard drive
Say for example that you have a laptop with Windows 10 installed as the only operating system. If you just create one extra partition of about 5 GB you can install Android KitKat on this extra partition and then "dual-boot". I.e. you can turn on your computer (called "booting it up") and decide whether you want to start Windows or Android KitKat. Grub will be installed as boot handler during the installation of Android KitKat.
You can also run/test the system in VirtualBox. I.e. run it directly from the ISO file and even install it to a hard drive created in VirtualBox. A Lollipop/Marshmallow Android-x86 system can normally not run in VirtualBox.
In my build 8 Bluetooth is stable and usable.
Mesa (3D Graphics Library) is upgraded to version 10.5.9, which has enabled hardware acceleration for Nvidia (Nouveau) and VMware (vmwgfx).
