Let's quietly do this!!!

Hi All,
I read that Microsoft have introduced Windows 12 to the market without any of the usual fanfare or bull we have become accustomed to.
The one review I read is a glowing report, claim W12 is everything MS users have been wishing for over the many years (minus ads maybe??)
Has any one experienced this allegedly brilliant system?

Apparently, 'Windows 12' is "... is actually nothing more than a Linux Lite LTS distribution that has been configured to look like Windows.". Not a Microsoft product.
From this article at Redmond mag - https://redmondmag.com/articles/2020...12-rumors.aspx

All Linux distributions are free with the exception of enterprise versions (beam me up Scotty)
