Is the Pinebook Pro (current version) good for someone trying to learn linux?

Or are there too many issues with it which would overwhelm a new user?


Definitely a good choice!

Here's why: as it stands, nearly everything works very well with the default distro, so you have a place to back up to if you get into trouble or even temporarily feel over your head. Easiest way to do that is follow the instructions on how to run a distro on SD. If you need a break, just restart with the SD card removed.

And the best reason: motivation! The PBP is your computer and getting it running tip-top and to your liking is very rewarding, not to mention the goodfeels you get from sharing your experience with the community thru these forums, and the help that this community offers.

PBP is more than hardware & software. We're all learning and helping each other.
