We want to build low cost and low power computers suitable for the developing world. Most of the desktop computers used in the industrialized world are based on x86 processors which are both expensive and power hungry. To meet our needs we use ARM CPU’s as they are produced by multiple semiconductor vendors and requires less power. Such computers can easily be powered by solar energy or battery while also being cheaper.
Android has become a very successful OS for phones and tablets. While not really a desktop OS we cannot ignore the huge number of applications and games readily available for Android. The success of Raspberry Pi underlies the need for a cheap computer to teach and learn programming. Debian Linux distribution powers this popular device. Unfortunately Debian doesn’t have any commercial applications to make it suitable as a general purpose computer. With our VolksPC OS we have addressed this serious limitation. It can run both Android and Debian applications and user can install them from Google play store or Debian repository. Also Debian GUI applications run faster, thanks to MicroXwin , while Android applications run at native speeds without emulation.
