Armbian - Xenial Desktop (Pinebook)
#34
After long fight I just give up. I was so excited about Armbian, I said to myself "finally very fast and handy OS for my Pinebook" and then so many problems. Outdated very old packages, web browsing very leggy, youtube unwatchable, and today I tried watching videos from my external disk and it was a disaster! Same problem like 2 posts before this, strange thing with colors. I already spent months testing and trying all OS images and non of them is not even close to usable performance for very basic things. So my conclusion is that his hardware and poor images with old outdated OS's are just not working.

Today I decided to give this laptop to my kid to play with it, sorry guys. Thank you for your work, but for me i don't see for what I could use my Pinebook. Wish you success and all best in future and maybe some day we'll meet again in some forum with some other piece of hardware.
