    Android-on-Windows App BlueStacks Hits 10 Million Download


    BlueStacks thought the idea of being able to run Android apps on a desktop computer would be popular with some consumers.
    It just didn’t know how many.

    Windows 8 tablet owners can still have the best of both worlds.
    The Windows 8 version of BlueStacks is optimized for RT. Sorry guys, I'm meaning to say Surface Pro...

    Not true.

    Bluestacks does not work on Windows RT. It is a desktop app and cant be installed.

    Now... THAT's a STORE! Immediately found 10 of the same apps I use on my phone!

    It says "for Surface Pro" but it installed on my system no problem. Basically it's a whole other Mobile System that installs into Windows. I wish it cold replace Metro.

    A mobile operating system to replace a mobile operating system that some naysayers tout as such?

    I don't have Bluestacks.

    Have I missed something?

    I was under the impression it is a program to run android apps on a pc. Rather like wine on linux

    Is Bluestacks a mobile os ?

    Basically that's the idea, run android apps on your PC. It's more like an emulator.
