Google has announced that their Andorid OS is now available for free for the x86 platform. According to their web site Google states the following:
Welcome to LiveAndroid, a LiveCD for Android running on x86 platforms.
Want to give Google Android a try, but don’t feel like buying a T-Mobile G1? LiveAndroid lets you download a LiveCD disc image of the Google Android operating system. Just burn the image to a disc, stick it in a CD-ROM drive, and reboot your computer and you can check out Android without installing it or affecting any files on your PC.
You can also use the disc image in a virtualization application like VirtualBox, VMWare or Microsoft Virtual PC if you want to try the operating system without even rebooting your computer.
So give Android a try and let us know what you think.
