    Is there a way to bypass the requirements for the Windows Subsystem for Android?

    Unfortunately to run WSA need really powerful hardware. I don't know it is only me but on my laptop it uses about 80% CPU.
     
  4. Really? Maybe theres something not right in ur laptop, my old laptop can run WSA smoothly, i play android games like subway surfer and angry birds :) its better to play android games on my old laptop.. than in my old phone :(

    It needs 8GB of RAM just to start.

    I'm used to run a baremetal server and 3/4 VMs in the same 8GB of ram.

    It's like using a caterpillar truck just to transport a cartoon of eggs.
     
  6. What?? 8 GB? But it runs smoothly in my old laptop, and my ram is only 4GB... dunno how it can run :kick:

    How can i access the Android Filesystem from Windows (like Windows Explorer). WSL gives the ability but Android Subsystem not yet as i can see.
