A few of those are actually based on Armbian. lol So you can expect them to go away if Armbian does.

Anyway, to your broader point, Armbian guys strike me as a small handful of very technically inclined types, so maybe marketing is not their strong suit. Which is part of why I am trying to help get the word out.

But they do make a very stable and reliable distro. And give a consistent experience across a (very!) wide range of hardware. All due respect to other projects, but I personally do not really think all the distros on that supported list are created equal.

I just read that Armbian will probably only support ubuntu based images from now on and are dropping Debian based images unless the board maintainer wishes to make it an option , but it technically wont be supported.
