Linux Distro Support
#7
Joe, 
I don't care whose community tkaiser is in. He seems to be the most competent person on this forum, and his input already triggered some supposed action from Pine Corp. 
I haven't seen him saying "This project sucks, it's fail etc.". He voiced valid, reasonable concerns that show experience in the area. 
If you think that you can just download some source from the interwebz and run make and all will be nice and peachy, I believe you never dealt with this kind of work. 
As it was noted earlier - I imagine there will be every single distribution built for ARM running on pine. Will they be great? No, not until we can get new kernel, drivers and all the software matched together. 
Pine is (will be) a great (advanced) hobbyist tool, but I do not expect it to reach the maturity level of the Raspberry Pi. Most users will stick to the stock android, then loose interest and have an expensive paperweight, hopefully there will be some who will keep this little project alive. 
It is fantastic option to get 64bit ARMv8 development board ( I'm here specifically for some features of the ARMv8 CPU), but it will take significant amount of effort to get it up and running. 
cheers
