My Pinebook Pro after a month of use.
#2
I've been using the PBP shipped with Manjaro (aka: the covid batch) and mine has worked flawlessly. I use it all day with no problems. Manjaro KDE has been very stable, no hard resets and I think I dropped to the shell once to reboot gracefully but that was one time in the month or two I've been using the PBP. A full desktop OS on a 5 volt device is exactly what I've been waiting YEARS for Smile I had very low expectations for the PBP as it's essentially a developer edition manufactured in the middle of a world wide pandemic and I am quite pleased with the model I received. Everything works!

I think it was like '05 when Ubuntu "Dapper Drake" was released and at the time I needed to update a ppc G4 Mac. I tried the "live cd" and ended up clicking "install".
Never looked back. The notion posed by Nobot about needing to be "fluent in linux code" After 15 years running Linux boxes I'm not really "fluent in linux code" whatever that means, I have to look s#!t up like most everyone else. Not just say "Oh well I'm not fluent in linux code" , "guess I can't figure it out". sheesh Smile
