On counterfeit SD cards
#20
2 cents: Something nice I saw Lubuntu do recently during an install was checking that the squashfs was not corrupted and matched the relevant hashes. Although a seemingly small thing, imagine how many man-hours this feature has saved! I think all the Pine distros could consider such a first-time verification step to save headaches.

Recently I found that of two identical memory sticks purchased from exactly the same place at exactly the same time, one was fake, one was not. I suspect some of these really low-margin suppliers mix in legit and non-legit devices to tip the reviews in their favour. If only 10% of people complain about it not working, they can even likely get these reviews mostly removed.

A little plug: I think this is why Pine should look into creating their own storage mediums: https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=13301
