After testing 4 androidX86 derivates (Stock Android X86, Remix OS, Phoenix OS and BlissROM) PhoenixOS seems the most stable and compatble Distribution. It supports OTA updates, which are deployed regularly. I've tested in virtual Maschines and two different Laptops, ohne with touch screen. PhoenixOS was the only one which runs smooth and supports every hardare (Keyboard, Touchscreen, Touchpad, Soundcard and so on). RemixOS, which was the most known distribution was a bit disappointing. It didn't run (or running smooth) on most tested maschines. It did not support every hardware, and most disappointing thing: It destroyed most of preinstalled operating systems, touching every local file system and external UEFI loader. Also it crashes a lot.
Bliss and Stock missing the possibility for OTA updates, but at least for bliss, it is planned. On RemixOS, which supports OTA updates, i've not seen any update in the timespan of testing (where 2 OTAs where provided by phoenixOS).

I have been using Phoenix OS on my Acer Aspire laptop for the last 6 or so hours and I am seriously geeking the f#@! out over how good it is! It is the best implementation of Android on x86 architecture I've seen. Easily and by far. Get it!
It allows me to experience Android on my Desktop, but it has poor hardware support.
Pretty decent experience of android on desktops, like you're using the native OS with plenty of customization specially for gaming, the biggest drawback of it is the sudden crashes particularly in it's browser and the annoying ads popping into your screen regularly.
I am unable to deploy it, both in VM case and actual hardware. (Hardware support is really limited)
It's the best ROM I could find to resurrect my Nexus 7. Of course other ROM support the Nexus 7 but none of them offer update and the last android. Be able to switch from tablet to laptop interface is a must. ;)
I think it's an excellent alternative to run android applications on pc. The project is maturing little by little implementing new functions and giving the greatest possible compatibility to multiple apps. I think it's time to establish itself as the best option for the development and execution of Android OS on Intel & AMD platforms with 32 and 64 bit architecture. Thanks to all the development team, and I encourage you to continue implementing new and stable features that make this project a real alternative to operating systems that dominate the market share these days.

Literally bricked 2 hard drives of mine on 1.5.0 release. At first I thought it was my computer, after trying on another one I can confirm the issue is in the OS itself. Not sure if newer/older releases have this issue as I'm afraid to try them. Don't attempt to use 1.5.0 release
