Maru OS – an Android build with a LXC Debian container built in. As soon as you activate screen sharing or hook up a DisplayLink dock, it starts the desktop environment onto the second screen. It’s using a graphical bridge between Debian container and Android system which writes data directly to SurfaceFlinger. This makes the desktop experience extremely good and fluent (not comparable to VNC for example).
Maru makes personal computing more context-aware by giving you the best interface for your environment. That means when you’re on the go, Maru is your phone; when you’re at your desk, Maru is your desktop.
To be more precise, Maru is an operating system that enables interactive virtual environments on Android. It’s based on the Android Open Source Project and focuses on mobile hardware. It uses lightweight OS virtualization (containers) to spin up virtual systems on demand, and provides a bridge into Android’s I/O framework for interactivity.
