Ubuntu Mate 'Welcome' and Software Boutique.
Not sure if anyone is tracking issues but I flashed Ubuntu 0.5.5-65 onto my new 64g EMMC last night and have been exploring. 

Very pleased so far - the Pinebook is awesome.

Anyway one thing I did spot was that the 'Software Boutique' which is part of Ubuntu Mate Welcome seems to show no available software and crashes after a few minutes. Having been away from Linux for a bit, I was hoping this would show me the 'best in class' apps rather than have to trawl through everything on one of the many package catalogs and managers.

The reason it crashes, it  seems, is because it doesnt know about ARM builds and since the Pinebook is ARM it shows no available software which then crashes the Boutique.

Can you folks in the Pine community lobby the Ubuntu Mate team to support ARM apps?

Until then: sudo apt-get install ....
