Remix OS 1.5 is now available for everyone. Remix OS is a tweaked Android version, with a desktop interface.
Remix OS features a taskbar at the bottom of the screen, so you can easily manage & switch between running apps. It also has handy apps pre-installed, like a File Manager, Office Suite, E-Mail Client, and a Notes app.
