The desktop operating systems we've been using for the last decades require far too much effort to maintain. What we need is a simple desktop that can be given to anyone, that always updates itself, that always repairs itself, and while the base system might always be up to date, users should be able to get to pick whatever apps they want to on top of it.

This is the basic premise of the MicroOS Desktop which came to life at oSC 2019 and is now in an Alpha state offered as part of the MicroOS installation ISO for both Intel and ARM architectures.

This session will demonstrate the current state of the MicroOS Desktop, discuss future plans and invite more contributors and users to get involved with this new generation of desktop linux.
