Doubts about rock64
#1
Hi guys ! I'm searching for a board  and i loved the many options here,  including the pinebook, and i have my 1° contact now with PINE64 ..
My objective is a cheap computer running UBUNTU.

I have some doubts , and i guess you can help me 

1.  Raspberry PI 3 X tinkerboard x ROCK64 ? Your personal experience 
2. Endless OS is supported ? https://support.endlessm.com/hc/en-us/ar...y-computer-

3. Rock64  has native wi-fi ? A Module wi-fi? 
 
4. PIDESKTOP is compatible ?  https://www.sparkfun.com/products/14354


In advance thanks .

There is Ubuntu (actively developed available for the R64) with and without DE. 

I will let community members answer 1), but I guess that the answer is "depends what you want to use the board for". However, I think you most would agree you probably should stay away from the tinkerboard

2) If they have ARM rootfs then I guess you could - there isn't an image available however, and I doubt someone will jump to make one.  
3) No and No. If you want WiFi then you'll have to use USB
4) The RPI has terribly slow IO - so forget about that box. The R64 on the other hand features a full speed USB 3.0 and GbE. 

Read more here if you are interested in the Rock64.

edit: please post just once and PLEASE read the forum rules first to learn why your post aren't showing up ...
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

I'm sticking with odroid xu4 until there is better software for the ROCK64.
