Here’s Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) Running on the Nintendo Switch

Yes, you’re reading it right, someone on GBAtemp gaming community posted a photo (attached below) of what it would appear to be Canonical’s latest Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) operating system running on a Nintendo Switch. You can see the new layout powered by the GNOME desktop and the brand new welcome screen. Moreover, there’s no hardware acceleration by default, which means that things are moving very slow when opening windows and switching between opened apps. However, after building the latest Mesa/LibDRM from a specific PPA the performance of the GNOME desktop was significantly improved.
