Poll 2: What is your favorite distro/interface for the PinePhone?
#1
I'm curious what people say is their favorite distro and interface on the PinePhone. Because the forum software only allows 10 options in polls and I count 35 different combinations of distros and interfaces, I'm creating 4 different polls, and will combine the four polls when tallying the results:

Poll 1:
Arch Linux (Phosh)
AVMultiPhone (Mate)
Fedora (GNOME)
Fedora (Phosh)
Gentoo (Phosh)
GloDroid (Android)
KDE Neon (Plasma Mobile)
LuneOS (Luna Next)
Maemo Leste (Hildon)
Manjaro (Lomiri)
----
Poll 2:
Manjaro (Phosh)
Manjaro (Plasma Mobile)
Mobian (jwm)
Mobian (lxde)
Mobian (openbox)
Mobian (Phosh)
Mobian (xfce4)
Nemo Mobile (Glacier)
NixOS (Phosh)
OpenMandriva Lx (Plasma Mobile)
----
Poll 3:
openSUSE (Phosh)
openSUSE (Plasma Mobile)
postmarketOS (i3wm)
postmarketOS (Kodi)
postmarketOS (Lomiri)
postmarketOS (Mate)
postmarketOS (Phosh)
postmarketOS (Plasma Mobile)
postmarketOS (Sway)
postmarketOS (Xfce4)
-----
Poll 4:
PureOS (Phosh)
Sailfish OS (Silica)
Sxmo (Suckless buttons interface)
Ubuntu Touch (Lomiri)
Other (explain in comments)


Please vote in one of the 4 polls. If you can't decide which is your favorite combination of distro/interface, then you can vote for multiple options. If I missed a distro/interface, please vote for "Other" and add a comment to this thread to explain your choice and I will tally it.

Results are tallied at: https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?...6#pid88876

I prefer the Phosh interface,  of the Distro's I have tested and played with,  at this time my choices would be :
1) Mobian
2) Arch/arm
3) Manjaro
In the beginning on my Brave Heart phone I WAS very impressed with UBPorts,  They were the first OS that worked on my Brave Heart.
Somewhere along the line they just completely "Dropped the Ball".  (in my opinion)

(For new users Ubuntu is probably the easiest to operate and learn Linux, 
          but it ultimately they seem to be following the MS route to privacy issues and "Non-Foss")
      LINUX = CHOICES

I agree. Phosh Based systems seem to be the way to go. They are less flashy but when it comes down to stability and just straight up working, phosh wins. Also, the little button that forces the keyboard open is a life saver at times. Why none of the other platforms like Plasma have that is beyond me.
Personally, I prefer Manjaro Phosh. It seems to have more features and tweaks and gives a very smooth user experience. (They have also been updating like CRAZY the last little while which has only made functionality better.) Mobian is another excellent distro and is also very stable and performs great but I have always been curious. Why do so many people prefer it over Manjaro Phosh? Isn't its performance and stability about equal? If there is a feature that it has that is missing from Manjaro I would love to know!

Edit: I did hear that Mobian was more friendly to other languages so I could certainly see that playing a part.
