Race is on: WOA on Surface Duo?

Surface Duo running Windows 11

I would consider an OG Duo if I could run W10 or 11 on it.

To be honest, I don’t want my Duo 2 running Win11. I want my Duo 2 to competently run Android!

I’d settle for NEO running Windows 11…

O yeah! Neo used to be a thing. We wished on the stars. How we fantasized about it and the things we would do with it. Those were the good old days and then the pandemic struck.
What became of it though? :thinking:

Still in purgatory. @Desertlap believes M$ is still tinkering with it. Final fate probably tied to WOA, I’m guessing.

Now I kind of want to get a Duo(well Duo 2 when that goes on fire sale) to run W11.

The installation is not yet functional enough for me to want a Duo but as it improves, it’s going to be hard to resist.

Well folks, the experiment took a big leap according to WindowsCentral.

I’m temped. Got my Duo2 as my main phone, this could be a good way to bring some life back into my Duo1. I think I’ll wait till its more stable.

Well speaking for me, according to Windows Central, touch isn’t working. That seems to be deal breaker to me anyway.

BTW: If MS and Qualcomm were to part ways or at least diverge on WOA in the future (and this seems more and more likely) I expect Qualcomm to move to shut this down, using among other tools, one we have talked about in other threads, DMCA

Well now touch is working, but still needs to be improved:

This is SO IMPRESSIVE

and SO INFURIATING!

If a “civilian” can accomplish so much, what the H*** is Microsoft doing NOT implementing this.

More progress on Win11 for the Duo OG.

Once they get this working 100%, I will likely not be able to resist.

You know, I’d love to try this (if I had a Duo), but I always have this sneaking suspicion that I am installing something that has a backdoor preinstalled. The guy doing this seems to mean well, so perhaps it’s not likely, but I always worry. Very cool project though.
