Rock64 netbook?
#1
Has anyone tried to make a netbook out of a rock64 yet? I'd like to get the 4gb version and give it a try, mostly for learning python, and make it small and very portable, as most laptops are just too hefty to carry around everywhere.

Would it run a regular Linux distro? Would you be able to install regular Linux programs?
Sorry for the noob questions, but you gotta start somewhere.

There was some talk here;

Yes SBCs like the ROCK64 run most GNU/Linux apps "out of the box".
The exception is sometimes hardware accelerated things like encryption, video, Wayland, hardware uncommon to desktops like the SOC USB3 implementation.
Video decoding is still a work in progress;
