Put macOS on the iPad, you cowards by Monica Chin, The Verge
Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, and I would imagine that what is shared in this article is probably a shared opinion by a good number. Here is the central idea:
But now that the iPad Pro is an M1 system, I don’t see why it can’t run macOS apps.
Not wrong, from a technical point of view. However, Apple, please don’t put macOS on the iPad. Please keep working on the iPad as the unique device that it currently is. I like the iPad where it currently sits.
She mentions the Surface Pro line of devices, and I know many who like them, but the schizophrenic nature of the device causes me more grief than either the iPad or any macOS device. There is a lot of iteration that needs to be done before the final, complete fusion of touch and non-touch devices.
This is, however, just my opinion.

Agreed I don’t want macOS, but I’d love better external monitor support. For me (and I am likely in the minority) that would be a huge boost in iPad productivity.
100% onboard. There are aspects of macOS that could/should migrate over as time goes on.
