Can you tell me a bit about your background and highlight the accomplishments you’re most proud of before joining Jide Technology?

First of all, I’m a self confessed computer geek. Programming is what I do and it’s what I’d continue to do, even if I didn’t get paid for it.

I was the CTO of Citron Network, a former VOIP operator in Taiwan and my proudest achievement coming out of that was the GNU Gatekeeper project; a free, open source VOIP gatekeeper. This project is alive today and still being used by some companies.

I worked at ASUS for quite a few years and one of the projects that I worked on was the Eee PC line, that worked on developing Android on Intel x86 boards. This lead on to my work on the Android-x86 Open Source Project (Android-x86 OSP).

The Android-x86 OSP is my proudest accomplishment to date and it’s really how I found out about Jide Technology and Remix OS in the first place.

How did you find out about Jide and Remix OS?

In early 2015, a community member of the Android-x86 OSP asked in our forums if I knew of Remix OS and whether or not we could port what they did into our project. I started keeping tabs on the project, and then in mid-2015, had the opportunity to connect with the team. Through working on a project together, I got to know the team pretty well.

Why did you decide to join the team?

Well, around October 2015, Jide Technology’s CEO, Jeremy Chau reached out to me and asked if I wanted to work together on supporting Remix OS on Android-x86 OSP. Speaking to Jeremy, I knew that we shared a vision for the future Android belonging on the desktop, and I was excited to find a way to make this happen.

Just as Linus Torvalds, founder of Linux, had mentioned before, Linux was started as a desktop OS, but it’s also the only area that Linux hasn’t completely taken over. It’s also why I kept working on the Android-x86 OSP, and I believe Remix OS is the best chance for Linux to still break into the desktop market.

As Mr. Torvalds has also talked about, the only way to desktop adoption is through pre-installations and working with the OEM brands of the world. Expecting end users to flash another OS onto their laptops and desktops is not sustainable. No one buying a computer is looking to actively flash a new OS onto their device. In fact, for most people, they don’t know or care to know the OS running in their computer. They just want to know that they can do what they need to do on their computer.

I believe users are leaving Windows or are at least open to other options. I’m excited that working on Remix OS provides a Linux based option to these users.

How does working at Jide compare to the previous companies and projects you’ve worked on?

Jide, being a comparatively smaller company, has been bold and nimble as it continues to innovate, and invests in R&D. But among the smaller companies, I would say Jide has been able to keep more in tune with our user community. At Jide, we actually iterate and develop products, both software and hardware, based on the feedback we get from our user community. That’s different and refreshing.
