Is the Pinebook Pro (current version) good for someone trying to learn linux?
#7
@diodelass, Agreed on all points.

There have been people here on the forums who are expecting the PBP to be a good replacement for an x86/x64 laptop right now. My words would be, "not yet, give us 6 months to 1 year". Pinebook Pro is just different enough from the older Pinebooks, that new engineering and software development is needed.

Of course, looks like a few of these Batches 1-3 have true hardware issues that can't be solved by software.
