    Android + IOS have voice control already and have replaced 90% of personal computer usage already, just dumbass sheeple don't know how to use voice commands, and virtual keyboards have replaced keyboard hardware.

    I have confess my love for Clear Linux. Backed by Intel they have come in a number of years ago concentrating on the cloud / server space / containerisation but have recently diverged into the desktop arena. Not only is the distribution the fastest out there but the direction is to provide a minimal set of packages (bundles) and expect the user to run flatpak / snaps / appimages for the rest (or compile them yourself). Its not for those new to linux or those who like to install 10's of apps everyday but its one to watch for sure.

    Nvidia drivers work, Steam runs (lsi is also now forked and testing), chrome runs, gnome runs with wayland and its so fast I laugh at gentoo.

    Each to their own. The kind of work I do really requires the use of a mouse.

    Did I mention that my mouse and keyboard are also perfectly supported under Openrazer drivers and the Polychromatic controller? :D

    A fun novelty (!searching for "F In Novel Tea"!), and a tiny less-efficient onscreen abstraction. I'm not impressed. 99% of the world's real computer work is still done with keyboard and mouse input.

    Apparently if you look in the mirror during a thunderstorm and say three times "Doctor SBAITSO", you'll suffer a fate worse than onscreen keyboards.

    Bit like how I keep accidentally yelling out "Behind!" when walking behind random strangers in the supermarket :p

    Done some looking. Can't find it but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

    Is there: a small UEFI linux distro which can act as a hypervisor for one (or more, but really only 1) BIOS emulated guest?

    Kinda like a bootloader that also pretends to be a bios.

    What can I say? Not having a compatibility support module is a real pain in the ass on compute sticks.

    Not sure what you after but try QMEU https://www.qemu.org/ might be able to emulate what you want, I use it for compiling ARM on INTEL.

    Thanks.
    It doesn't really seem like there's a distro for this. Played around with alpine last night and made some progress. Though no operating vm yet.

    I honestly dont know why more distros dont have a cross-compile toolchain builder like gentoo's crossdev. Makes life so easy for this sort of thing. crossdev -t <targetarch> and boom, it builds you up appropriate gcc, libtool, binutils, automake, (EDIT - and libc obvs), etc etc. Hell even just a binary metapackage for common architectures would make sense, for other distros

    Know what'd be amazing?
    Some sort of very basic distro that boots and dumps all the pnp info to a text file in a way that allows you to get the drivers for a distro before you try installing it.

    Fuck you RTL8723BS

    meh using RTL everyday Ubuntu 16.04 out of the box. MAYBE you should ask Realtek why they don't support Linux with that chipset.

    Oh there's a driver. Fucked if I can figure out how to load it.

    Even with a GUI install, debian doesn't have a "browse for drivers" and the text method is way, way more complex than opening the config.sys and typing "load c:\drivers\wifi\rtldrv.com"
