Which OS can I actually run a 1080p pinebook non-pro?

Hi, 
I have tried a bunch of different images with various kernels, but in all cases performance is unusable. I'd like to use this device for [i]something[/i], but it needs to be reasonably good at it. I had issues with: some images black screening because they were intended for the low-res screen, some images not working when transferring them to emmc, GUI performance in general sucking, hardware support being incomplete and even non-GUI applications being slow. Kali worked, but it was just too slow to do anything. I'm not even expecting web browsing, at least a usable desktop. Is this even possible?

What are you running and what is the least sucky option that at least works?

Did you try Armbian?

Protocols, not Platforms

For the most Linux-y experience on your Linux phone, try SXMO!

I am (nominally) the Armbian Maintainer for PineBook Pro (although severely lacking in time these days).
