      You're an incredible searcher Hedon James. 😲  Thank you. 🍻   I will definitely checkout your links.  Porteus is based on Slackware and I'm sure if something can be done on Mint or Ubuntu it can be done on Porteus.

      Open Shell has replaced Classic Shell and as far as I know is still under development. The latest version works fine with Windows 10.     This is what Windows 10 looks like with Open Shell. All you have to do to launch a browser or email is use the icons on the lower taskbar. The Start button gives a Windows 7 like menu.

      Also found this for you Ed:   https://www.philipdaniels.com/blog/2019/installing-wine-and-quicken-on-mint/   He's installing on Mint, so terminal commands are based on Debian tools.  Not sure what Porteus is a derivative of, but if we can translate the Debian tools/commands to Porteus tools/commands, it seems very do-able!  FWIW...

      Now if it also requires special software (most don't), it may get trickier.

      Usually bluetooth works the same, no matter the OS (mobile or not).
