Installing old software on current devices is always fascinating. That of watching Doom run on calculators, screens of refrigerators or smartwatches will never lose its fun, but when it comes to installing Windows XP on a Nintendo Switch, and on top of that it is possible to play the Space Cadet of all the life, the thing already acquires a character almost poetic. A user of Reddit, We1etu1n, you have done so, and you have boasted of art in this Reddit thread. “I have been using the Nintendo Switch as a main computer through L4T Linux for a few days,” he said on the page, adding: “It took me six hours to install and access the desktop.

Alfonso Torres, who is what is called responsible, performs all kinds of projects that he speaks on his Twitter account. You can have a look here.
