why you no install ubuntu on your PC then its atlest way powerful then android on PC. it seems really odd how people get excited to underutilize the PC with android thats a joke . or someone really got pumped to port android on it. only good thing i see here is. developers can run their apps to test, they gonne run at blazing speed on PC but you wont get any idea about actuall phones.

I want 4.2 running on top of Windows, not on the same level as a full-fledged OS.

Sure, so long as the hardware drivers are compatible.

How can I play games on my PC since all the games and apps are optimized for touchscreen phones and tablets?

How can I get the ISO file? I'm descompacting the RAR file but can't find the ISO one.

For downloading the ISO folder, try using Chrome. Internet Explorer likes to put all files into a RAR and i have had many problems with it. Chrome should just download the strait ISO file.

No problem :)

If that doesn't work i made an additional post which is Number 55 you should look at. Tell me if Chrome makes a difference.

How do you guys navigate with it? I had to enable the 'show pointer location' in the developer settings and then click and move around my mouse just to know where it is. And also, how do you get it to connect to the network? Sorry, not used to Virtual Machines :P

To navigate, click "Machine" in the menu bar and click "Disable Mouse Integration" not sure about how to connect to the network though. I want to know how you got past the Choose your Language screen, I click English (U.S) and I get an infinite loading bar.

ok, thanks. managed to get the mouse in the VM with that method.. So, have you figured out how to get network connection? The screenshot in this news seems like it's connected to the network..

Nope, haven't found a way yet. Seems kind of useless without a connection.
