Best OS for...
Hi everyone,

as we have now plenty of OSes to choose from to install on our Rock64 board for doing one thing or another, and it's could be difficult and time consuming to pick the right tool for the task, I have thought of gathering OS to use and the purpose which suit them best.

A random example:

retrogaming/emulate N64 - Android x.y.z (+ link to image or a relevant thread) (+ if available other links with performance report)
kodi - raspbian X
NAS - dietpi Y.Z
FTP server - ...
and so on

So, based on user's experience and feedback, someone new getting "rock'ed" Wink  can , just reading the list, pick right away the very right OS and be happy with his/her new board, instead of searching for hours, pick one, have trouble installing it, then be disappointing because in this one, peripheral A or B is not yet handled well.

the "best" could be for performance, maintenance, easiness, power consumption, etc

Even for just testing the Rock64 without any actual usage, it's not that easy among all OS available. Myself I go on dietPi on SD in order to install Android on eMMC and try it for retrogaming (mostly CPC, Amiga and PSX would be a nice bonus)

What do you think ?
@Moderators: making it sticky, is that sound useful ?
