Maybe it’s just me but I don’t see such a possibility in the ‘near’ future at least for the average joe version of Windows.

Microsoft could select from any number of desktops for its official flavor: GNOME, KDE, Pantheon, Xfce, Mint, Cinnamon… the list goes on and on.

I do not think they would do this, if they were going to switch they would create their own environment, it would probably also use directX and other MS technologies to make it incompatable with linux in a similar way to chromeOS and android and linux. @Micalet@lemmy.ml said it really well.

It would certainly be nice if that happened :grinning face: But I’m not holding my breath either.

I would do it for ARM where the slower NT kernel is more noticeable. And with their video subsystem, not Xwindows, not wayland, with directx, something like Apple did with FreeBSD kernel.

And I will not call this new MS OS windows, just “MS mobile” or similar.

Having fast enough ARM tablets and phones, then, go for the Xbox portable similar to the nintendo switch format, but adding to it the capabilitie of being a pocket computer and a phone, as well, with WiFi6 or 5G play streamed and not only one device, cheap is good, make 3 tiers, minimum, medium, enthusiast. For gaming and SOHO + casual gaming markets.

Done that hybrids laptops, with some x86 models, and of course allowing desktop x86 to install it, having 2 OSs as they have now practically with the ARM one but with a convergence horizon.

Yes, I too hate using real computers and prefer novelty Google toys.

It just seems so strange to me that people would choose toy phones over real machines, but then again I actually do work on my computer and also gaming. Most people just check Facebook.

Well, gaming is seeing some transition into cloud as well. Of course hardcore gamers will never accept it but “people [who] just check Facebook” might be OK with Stadia/Lunia/GeForce Now

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
