Did someone say macOS on a Steam Deck?

A Reddit user has managed to get macOS running on a Steam Deck. Using a combination of SteamOS VirtualBox virtualization software, macOS Catalina is up and running on the 7-inch display with performance said to be “normal.” But the animations are laggy according to the Reddit poster, and booting macOS takes minutes. That’s probably down to no hardware acceleration, but hey it’s fun to experiment!
