ROCKPRO64 suitable for experimenting with custom NVMe drivers?
#2

BUT, I was wondering if there are any traps I should be aware of that would make we want to consider a different device? (I presume the Pine64 adapter card is more likely to work well than a third party adapter card?) 

To be extra clear: it's suitability for experimentation that concerns me most: a computer that I can mess up to an arbitrary degree while my main Linux box remains stable to use for other things ;-). I may eventually play with kernel mode drivers too -- be afraid; be *very* afraid!

Any thoughts about suitability? (Thanks in advance!)

My takes should be suitable. If you runs into issue or question, the best place to explore is ROCK64 IRC chat (http://pine64.xyz, then /join #rock64)
