    The long promised Android integration is slowly materializing, may be a (or the?) reason to adopt W11.
    If it turns out to be viable it's a revolution, this time a useful and welcome one compared to all the other more or less chaotic experiments offered since W7.

    "It is also possible to sideload Android apps using ADB, which means you can enjoy all the bells and whistles without limiting yourself to the Amazon Appstore offerings."

    "Note: Before we get into the manual installation process of the Windows Subsystem for Android, keep in mind that the current release is nowhere near a stable milestone. Microsoft has put the restrictions by keeping the performance parameters in mind, which is why you may face occasional glitches (or even crashes) on the unsupported platforms. It is always a good idea to create a full disk image of your current Windows 11 installation before tinkering with it so that you can quickly revert back to a working state."

    Unless you doing DIY experiments I never try something like that on the computer you need access to on daily bases. That should only be something experiment on until your sure your preferences are "Stable" otherwise one shouldn't do this on the main computer.

    It does warn "create a full disk image of your current Windows 11 installation before tinkering", or use a separate disk\rig\laptop, whatever one usually employs to make experiments and research safe.

    And one has to wonder how many people would really read those "Warning"?
