Graphics
#31
I'm not bothered about graphics acceleration in Linux (it would be nice, but not a "show stopper")... I'm getting 2 x 2GB Pine A64 - will run Android on one - and Linux with Docker containers on the other... Frankly I'd prefer Debian Jessie 64 bit to any other ARM Linux distro (I've got 2 x NextThing CHIPs and 1 x BananaPI all running some variant of Jessie - the banana sits on top of my wifi router and runs BIND for my internal networks - forget about running a GUI on the BananaPI and that's more powerful than a (original) RaspberryPI.

I'm really hoping there will be a stable build of Ubuntu (headless / server) or Debian 64 bit available when these things are delivered...

If I was going to run a GUI on Linux on one of these, I'd be going XFCE4 - b_gger Unity or Gnome3 or KDE!

Looking at Linux for this and game support. There are several MMO's that offer Linux clients, A Tale in the Desert comes to mind. For my MMO of choice, the processor of Pine64 is more than enough. Just haven't seen any success of WINE and DirectX working for people. Anyway, I will see if I can get Asheron's Call working. Ha!

Wine on an ARM CPU?  I think not...  Good luck finding binaries for these things for the ARM architecture...

Probably have more luck getting Windows RT running in 32 bit on the Pine :-)

I doubt if ANY game developers are porting any of their games to run on Linux on ARM cpu...  never mind 64 bit...
