    Yeah, you're right. Aarch64 has been getting the short end from Google for a while, despite being included in ChromeOS Aarch64. Windows ARM was also left out, getting an x86_32 or x86_64 version that ran via emulation until quite recently. With Lacros now becoming standard, I'd imagine Linux Aarch64 will get a build soon

    Why? There are native aarch64 builds of Chrome on most OSes.

    Will have to see how the new ARM snapdragon laptops will look like in performance but with Asahi + FEX its looking like the M series macbooks can become a serious contender for a power efficient machine that can also game.

    Linux also has OnlyOffice for better interoperability with Microsoft Office files. I think the biggest few things holding Linux back from becoming an option for businesses is the lack of integration with some business software solutions like Microsoft active directory and Microsoft office calendars and teams, however, browser-based security and office software are actually viable.

    On a personal level, I have no restrictions on using Linux, but I can't say it's ubiquitous or easy yet without a fair bit of learning. As the KDE devs have previously said, there's a need to appeal to the least tech-enthused people, on order to get mass adoption.

    I actually think Microsoft though has made it easier than ever to migrate (likely not intentional of them).
    Ah sweet wasn’t aware of OnlyOffice. I just use Google’s suite. I agree with the KDE devs.

    Active directory doesn’t work in which way? I use SSSD and it works as expected for Active Directory. You also have Winbind, I use the PWA Teams on Linux. I see some admins not wanting to use it since there isn’t a proper MDM solution for Linux. I can’t drop ship a Linux machine to an end user and have it auto configure itself being off the local network.

    FEX is really promissing especially for android gamers who want to run games on their phones. I do have to say though, box86 support riscv does interest me more.
