This looks interesting. It's supposed to work well on lower-powered devices.

Definitely interesting, although as shown in the link, it looks too similar to MacOS X. I wonder if the dock can be moved to the left side?

What looks particularly interesting is the convergence feature. But even if it works well, I doubt that I could run it on my Samsung S20 without breaking it.

I forgot to mention the convergence. Maybe this will be the replacement for the Ubuntu desktop that used to do this. It sounds like it's pretty early yet to know how efficient it is or what it will run on. I'd be afraid to brick my device, too. Perhaps if I had an old phone, I'd try it. Or if it will run on a Huawei tablet...
