Hi, I'm thinking of buying a Jetson Nano instead of flashing my Switch. Is there any overlap between the tools for the Nano? What OS is the Switch using?

The Switch uses Horizon OS, a custom in-house Nintendo operating system with no relationship whatsoever to Linux or Unix in general. There is virtually no overlap with an off-the-shelf Jetson Nano running Linux. We only support Switch development on Horizon OS. Also, you don't need to flash anything on your Switch to get homebrew running. The way CFW works is non-invasive and it can be enabled or removed at the user's pleasure. (It might not give you this impression if you read 3rd party sources, which are all about installing pirated games)
