Is the new announcement of Windows 11 about running Android App natively without needing an emulator have any impact on the Jetpack compose ?! In another term, is this mean that in the future we can develop desktop apps just using Android development tools ?!

I guess there really isn't any impact IMO. Android apps on desktop have never really taken off. Most android apps on chrome just don't work that well because they're not really designed to be used on desktop. I think it's a nice option though.

Yeah, IIUC, the Windows 11 thing still won't let you access native OS functionality (eg. you can't access files on the filesystem, don't have access to system tray, file type associations, etc). You are pretty limited in what you can do if you can't access any of the system APIs. Compose for Desktop solves this problem by giving you full access just like any other native application, instead of being constrained to the APIs of a virtualized environment.
