what is the rock64 good for?
#3
I have two rock64's. I'm happy to tell you what mine are good for...

I'm using one as a headless NAS / mail server / Nextcloud server. I got it to replace a Raspberry PI 3B which was doing the same things. The RPI had some serious performance issues due to lack of RAM and I/O. The Rock64 just hums along and I hardly ever have any issue with it.

The 2nd one is used as a basic desktop for light browsing, and also is used as a Gentoo development machine. The 4 GB of RAM means it can build some larger packages than my 2 GB PineA64's, like Firefox and Chromium. I don't use it for media, it doesn't perform very well at things like video playback, but that's mostly because I haven't put any effort into that.
