The makers of JingOS, Jingling, are a China-based company working on the JingPad, an ARM tablet designed to run Linux
According to the official description of the operating system, as posted on JingOS dot com, “You may have noted that Apple is integrating MacOS and iPadOS to provide a unified experience. But Apple’s progress in doing this is very slow, and its ecosystem is not open.” The folks behind JingOS want to rectify the situation with this operating system, JingOS, they call a “future open operating system with the unified experience of ‘mobility’, ‘productivity’, and ‘entertainment’ for global users.”
Right out the gate, the operating system will work with only a few devices. The Huawei MateBook 14 and the Microsoft Surface 6 will be able to use the operating system on day 1. Day 1, January 31, 2021, was announced as the day JingOS version 0.6 will be released to the public.
JingOS currently works with a set of native (Linux) apps including Calculator, Timer, Files (a file explorer app beyond the main OS interface), Media Player, and Calendar.

It would appear that the Github “JingOS-team” is the place to be to meet contributors. If this OS truly is an open and publicly accessible operating system, not bogged down in the politics of any one company’s closed-system app store, distribution system, or government leadership, it should be an OS to be reckoned with.
A published JingOS forum release from the JingOS team suggests that an official JingPad C1 tablet will be released in June of 2021. JingOS v1.0 is scheduled for June 30, 2021, supporting JingPad C1 (an ARM-based device).
