#18
I am a bit disappointed at the fact that this project advertised Ubuntu linux support, but in reality they are expecting community members to get it done. Perhaps the Raspberry Pi is the better option if you want full linux desktop support.

I am not one to shy away from getting hands on with linux builds but perhaps it would have been better for the Pine Team to not blatantly mislead the supporters of this project with that UBUNTU logo on the kickstarter page.

I think I may be withdrawing support too cause at the end of the day I can purchase a fully operational Android box with all the trimmings for less than $40 bucks and it comes with case and remote. What I wanted here was a linux ready & compliant board, not a promise that may never happen.

quoted from the kicstarter campaign

"Because PINE A64 is an open source platform, you can load anything you want but we suggest to pair PINE A64 with Ubuntu, Android or openHAB IoT. By aligning the PINE A64 to be compatible with these operating systems, you basically get access to over 1.7 Million apps* on the market today, from utilities, games, and media apps.
*Android Apps available today"

Clearly you cannot pair it with Ubuntu as nothing but a headless has been built (not even thoroughly tested).

The question becomes when will the Official Pine64 version of Ubuntu be ready and I am not talking about some community generated version from various sources, I mean a Pine64 Team build that is officially supported?

I think it's only fair to ask at this stage as I am sure there are users out there who would like to know. Remember Pine64 team you advertised it during the campaign and nothing was ever mentioned that we, the community, had to figure out how to build/compile it ourselves Wink.
If you like my work be sure to check out my site or wish to donate to the cause

Cheers Big Grin
