Popular desktop OS will move to tablets

Now Apple dominates the tablet world with the iPadOS operating system. Other manufacturers release devices running Android and Windows 10, but this is the choice for most users ends. It seems that soon the famous trinity will have a serious competitor in the tablet market.

According to the image published on the Chinese social network Weibo, the popular operating system Deepin - a Linux distribution based on Debian - will soon be available not only on personal computers, but also on tablets. This OS supports 33 languages, including Russian, and the number of downloads exceeds 80 million. For example, HUAWEI uses this system as an alternative to Windows on some of its laptops.

As you can see, the Debian tablet version has a recognizable interface with a dock for selected applications at the bottom of the screen. A control center is called up from above, where quick settings are located: display brightness, volume, wireless networks and more.

An insider reports that the authors of Deepin intend to realize the ability to work with multiple devices. About the release dates of the tablet version of the OS and the supported tablets nothing is said.
