    This is currently under development and is aimed at developers to help them easily port their apps to the Windows Phone Store.

    You probably should :) Especially since we don't know if this can brick your phone when updating the phone to newer builds (fast lane)

    Well, considering we're talking about a leak, not an official release last time I checked, of a very complex/fancy feature in an OS that it itself isn't complete then I believe the answer becomes clear.

    It's not actually going to be out for public use (meaning Android apps on W10M) until 2016, as Microsoft prefers to cobble some mess together, throw it out there, then add features when the adoption rate is crap because they didn't finish the OS in the first place.

    Project Astoria was not and is not a plan by Microsoft to turn Windows phone into an Android launcher. As such, Astoria isn't intended to be public facing. Tools were leaked and people got really excited to see Android apps running on Windows devices. But the results may vary greatly and no matter how you figure, you are breaking the legal terms of use of Android APKs and Windows developer tools.

    But, the silver lining is that Astoria may be the real deal, and Android app developers may have the drive to use Astoria to make their Android apps Windows compatible upon it's launch.
