A mint distribution for PineA64 should be possible; absolutely.

Une distribution de menthe pour PineA64 devrait être possible; absolument.

Installing the Cinnamon desktop on my Debian install had some performance issues, but MATE should do just fine.

Yea, think that Cinnamon is a no-go; krux tried it a while back, and ran into problems. But I think that using mint with mate desktop shouldn't be a problem.

yeah, the issue is that Cinnamon is going to require hardware acceleration; which is a no-show on linux.

cr2016, I am currently away. But I can try and make a mint img with the mate desktop when I get back (mostly for myself). But why not just use ubuntu ?

Using Mint on two PCs... I suppose having the same interface on pine64 too would be... convenient ;-)

But the main point is for everybody to have one more choice when deciding what to use/install.

In Intel-Land, I've come to prefer Mint to Ubuntu. I've also had an easier time installing Steam on Mint. I think it uses older Debian libraries than Ubuntu.
