From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen.

APK Makes Windows 95/98/XP and Linux Run on EVO 3D
Running computer operating systems on a phone is always an interesting experience. For most phones, booting into Linux is hard enough and Windows isn’t even an option. The HTC EVO 3D is not one of those phones.
XDA Senior Member mnomaanw has posted a method that will get Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows XP and Linux running on the HTC EVO 3D in a relatively easy process that can be done pretty quickly. Basically, all a user needs to do is download the required software, modify a file or two and run the apk. Wait for it to boot and you’re ready to go.
Controls are pretty easy to understand and make excellent use of the hardware as well as the home and menu buttons. The instructions are as follows:
- It emulate touchpad on touchscreen and left/right mouse buttons on volume
– You can also click touch screen to generate mouse left button click.(this does not work everytime)
– Back = BackSpace, Menu = Enter, left-upper corner click generates TAB
– left-lower corner click popups keyboard
For those who want to give their EVO 3D some Windows or Linux love, they can find all the downloads and instructions in the thread here but make sure to take the proper precautions, such as backing up your device.
