Its comments like THIS that make it touchy! You say "But there is a good chance ... in the not-too-distant-future."

How vague and unhelpful, you should point them to sunxi https://linux-sunxi.org/Main_Page Where there is actual information regarding the open sourcing effort in general with AllWinner, though I will say I do not know for sure if Mali infomation is in there. There have been many attempts to get Mali drivers this is not a new graphics core and those drivers have been a stopping point for MANY boards... do a few searches and you will start to see that support for this board is going to be hard to come by. Unless you can point to some "internet facts" that show allwinner or mali saying they are doing it or someone reputable within the community (NOT Pine64 community, the linux kernel community) believing that they are coming I say hold your breath and play the lottery!
