Welcome to the all-new Windows Central Forums! - We're still moving some things around, so you may see a few quirks here and there, but we're working on getting things fully completed as soon as possible. For now, take a look around, and if you run into any major issues, please let us know in this thread!
I had no idea this was a thing. There's clearly rough edges and it's pretty slow, and no cellular support (that's a biggie), but still very cool.
Apologies if this has been posted a million times, I haven't visited in a while! More info and warnings etc here.
Fair point. I actually read that people had success on both the 950 and the 950XL.You mean to say 950 XL and thanks for posting the video link.
Definitely, although it runs better than I personally expected!This is a great feat, no doubt about that. But the performance must be so slow and sluggish.
10 years ago, I would have been all over this (WOA on 950XL). But these days, I just don't care. I sold mine and moved on.
I thought I read somewhere that they did get the wifi to work (it didn't in the second video I posted, and they used wired ethernet in the first video). I don't know about external monitors, which would be a game changer. It might be too slow to be anything but a hobby project, but still cool.Is the wi-fi working yet? The last time I saw this (a few months ago) there was no wi-fi, which means that you really couldn't do anything with it.
In a nutshell, I want my device to be my servant. I do not want to be the servant for my device! :smile:
As for tinkering to set this up, I probably won't either, mostly because it requires a lot of trust in the sites where you download the necessary files.
Upside, you can inspect the source code of the installer, so if you glance over the 130+ MB worth of source files you can check if it's safe.
