Problem making SD card
#1
I have a 10 speed SD card 32gig.  I went to the Pine Wiki and tried to download the 32G version of remix.  That file appears to be larger than the usable space on a 32G card.  Should I therefor try the 16G version?  What is going on here, what good is a 32G memory card that is already filled with 32G of stuff?  Ofcourse I can download the file to my hard drive, though for some reason it isn't too thrilled with that process either.  Why is the image needed so big?  I thought android was an efficient OS?  If it is just mapping the card for 32 gigs worth, why is the file to do that so large?

I haven't installed software as an image file before, I guess I will google that to see what it means, but so far it seems like a far larger pain than the good old days of feeding in 12 floppies.  The file is slow to download, requires a 50 dollar program to uzip. is slow to unzip, and requires another program to burn the image.  Selling pre burned cards as raspberry did might have been ab additional income stream and saved a lot of time for the developers.

I am keeping in mind this is the Remix OS, not the Pine 64.  Have the hardware all ready to go, but the software is a pain.  And I haven't even run into the bugs phase yet.
