which distro + DE are you using these days on the Pinebook Pro?

Almost stock - just extra acpid hackery for speakers muting/unmuting on headphones plugging/unplugging, WiFi/BT firmware, asound.state with immutable flag. Oh, and u-boot-rockchip from Debian Experimental. The only thing that doesn't work is deep sleep.

I installed mine completely manually, doing essentially the same thing that debootstrap does automatically, but official SD card image with u-boot from experimental should work too, though partitioning would likely need to be done manually and u-boot also needs to be installed separately from experimental.

why did you choose Debian Sid?

I'm asking because I'm after a distro and DE combo that provides the greatest performance and stability on the Pinebook Pro. (I should have pointed out in the opening post.)

Find it to be pretty snappy, and the Manjaro i3 ISO has some nice defaults and everything works.

thanks. which desktop environment do you think is the best?
