Samsung Is Bringing Linux To Galaxy S8 And Note 8 Smartphones
Everyone recognizes the open source OS, Linux as a platform with the potential to become the future of personal computers, and may soon grow into a real desktop alternative.
Many brands recognize this ability and prepare to use it. The South Korean giant Samsung is the latest to join this group but in a special way. Using Dex and its smartphones, it will open the doors to Linux.
Dex, as the South Korean giant Samsung introduced several times, is an accessory that accompanies the South Korean giant Samsung’s top-of-the-line smartphones and enables them to be connected to a monitor, thus ensuring a workstation or a (almost) computer.
The South Korean giant Samsung has invested in this philosophy and so is now opening Dex to other operating systems. The next bet is to give users access to various Linux distributions, which they can use as needed.
To give this capability, a new app from the South Korean giant Samsung, called Linux on Galaxy, will soon emerge and will give access to these distributions, which anyone can use.
According to the South Korean giant Samsung, the idea is to give programmers access to specialized tools to create their code, anywhere and anytime. Of course, everyone can use it, giving them access to new applications and new possibilities.
In order to test this news, when it arrives, you will need to have one of the recent Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8 or S8+. Of course, the presence of a Dex will be essential.
After several less clear and laborious ways to have Linux running on an Android smartphone, everything is now simpler with the novelty that the South Korean giant Samsung will bring.
