Interested in running Android on your computer? Well, short of buying FXI’s Cotton Candy, it seems that an open source project called Android-x86 is currently working on a means to get Android up and running on your laptop or PC. It seems that so far so good, as the developers behind the project have successfully managed to load up Android Honeycomb 3.2 on various netbooks and laptops.

The idea behind it is similar to that of FXI’s Cotton Candy, in the sense that you will need to boot Android from a USB stick. Alternatively you could use an SD card as well. They’ve managed to get just about everything up and running, including Android Market, but it seems that the majority of users who managed to get this running successfully have been owners of ASUS branded PCs, although we can’t be sure of the reason behind that particular phenomenon.

For more information about the Android-x86 project, or if you’re looking for a way to load up Android’s Honeycomb 3.2 onto your laptop or PC, head on down to Android-x86’s website for the details. In the meantime you can check out this guy who managed to load Honeycomb 3.2 onto his ASUS Eee PC.
