Linux Mainline
#23
I have just been playing with the Artful minimal image and Lubuntu-QT-Desktop which works real nice.
17.10 has the 4.13 Kernel but was looking at the dates and hoping maybe the 4.14 LTS will be released before the 5th Kernel Freeze — October 5th.

The inclusion of 17.10 I guess is statement of intent and both LTS of 18.04 & 4.14 are a wished destination.

he complete release schedule of Ubuntu 17.10 as follows:

Alpha 1 — June 29th
Alpha 2 — July 27th
Feature Freeze — August 24th
Beta 1 — August 31st
Final Beta — September 28th
Kernel Freeze — October 5th
Release Candidate — October 12th
Ubuntu 17.10 final release — October 19th

4.14 is already RC2 so maybe and its brilliant to have a product and being among developers who are talented enough to be so bleeding edge.

Its looking really good for the Rock64 as a LTS product that will have a long life and the pains for some of early adoption are prob going to pay dividends.
I have seen some entries for other Arm SoCs but Rockchip & Pine have got much adoption in the kernel.
My alternative to the Rock64 is the Odroid XU4 and maybe I have missed things but its looks like hardkernel have missed the 4.14 boat.
Raspberry dont have a Pi4 till 2019 and looking like the Rock64 has a market space of 2 years.

There will be a beer for backporting 4.14 for Ayufan and think without asking that is going to happen if 17.10 misses 4.14 but it could end up in 17.10 and Ayufan & Ubuntu seem to have working images with 17.10 & the 130 release. 

Unlike all the other images the pre-release 130 works whilst 118 release doesn't with 17.10.

If your playing with linux I suggest having a look at 17.10 armHF Lubuntu-QT-Desktop as its under heavy development for the 17.10 release so actually its quite stable.
Also maybe its the MALI driver of 4.12 or a fix but the colours seem to look more vibrant.
