    For what? I think android has more multimedia apps than linux.

    kodi's the best overall media player around and running a Linux version of it on the these android boxes is much more efficient and stable then running kodi on Android... besides Android really was written for touch screen devices and a lot of its software leaves much to be desired running on these tvboxes with emulated keyboard controls... Its ok if your actually using the android appz but for someone wanting strictly to stream and view media using kodi or playing with a games emulator then a embedded Linux solution is a better choice... Openelec for amlogic based units is a good example but Im not sure whats publicly available for the rockchip boxes...

    You can run linux on the x7 but the lack of drivers will not make it a good media player...
