Fanless daily driver?
#1
What I am trying to replace: mini-itx  I LINUX Mint, 3 drives and a noisy fan. 

Typical usage:

- Music/video streaming (youtube/SomaFM, etc)
- Browsing
- Darktable (photo editing)
- ebook server
- Libre Office
- email (Mailspring)
- watching video downloads
- Transmission torrent client
- VS Code (web sites)

Occasional/optional usage:

- video editing

Need to be able to:

- connect to 3 drives (USB?)
- connect to VT KEYBOARD
- do HDMI

Questions:

1 - is this possible with the RockPro64 in a small fanless case?
2 - is Linux Mint 19 running on this yet?

Hello donblanco,
It all depends..

You want to use 3 hard-drives attached?
If you found another power Source it could be possible tough..
I don't know if Linux Mint is supported, but you have several options for desktops here..

I do pretty much what you are saying in mine RockPro64,
Compiling big projects like all libboost, ARM Compute Library( NEON/OpenCL ) and such, with no problem..you mentioned VS Code...you mean Visual studio code?

I don't really know,
People around Linux don't use, usually, Microsoft tools..
But if there is any port of Visual Studio for Linux/arm I don see why it shouldn't work..

It would be better to use a light desktop environment. because it would be faster..
My RockPRo64  is a daily driver Desktop, I do everything here..

I guess I should find power specs on the RockPro64, maybe the wiki?

I've been running VS Code on linux for months now. It's really nice!

So probably LXDE or XFCE? OK cool...
