Will they ship with Lomiri, Phosh, Plasma Mobile, or Other interface? Has that been decided?

Who/where are the $10-per-unit donations being routed to?

From what I have read elsewhere on our Pine64 forum,

the Phosh desktop currently gets the 'best battery life' 

of the 3 available Manjaro desktops being considered.

I do find the Phosh desktop very "user intuitive"   from my use so far.

They donate 10.00 to the development team that the OS comes with. For Manjaro that means the manjaro arm dev team.

There is an article on the main website page, Titled:  "Time to give back..."

It is a very good read,  but too long to repeat here.
It explains in detail where the donation money goes.

I read that ,  when installed to the eMMC,  the recent Manjaro OS will not allow booting from the sd
 card,  hopefully that does not include the release that ships on this batch of Pine phones ?

Is there going to be anymore hardware upgrades or similar like the convergence package on the pinephone? I want to get the manjaro 3gb version but dont really want to get it and find out a month or 2 later I could have got something a little better... thanks

As far as I know, there isn't a new higher-end board coming for the time being.

If you look through the store, yuo can see that many of the individual pieces of the pinephone are for sale, meaning we might be able to upgrade various bits in a modular fashion in the future. My guess is that this won't be happening for non-support issues for a while, but it is something that could be done.
