why are there different images based on sd card size?
#1
I'm new to this, but have been exploring and experimenting with my new pine64 and also a rpi3 (just ordered a ODROID-C2 to play with as well)

I haven't seen this practice elsewhere. for other distros I have tried there is a single img file and, once you have it flashed, you expand the file system to free up the rest of the card.

Just curious what the advantage is here.

thanks
