Is the Pinebook Pro (current version) good for someone trying to learn linux?
#13
I'm going to have to go with diodelass here. I'm pretty experienced with Linux from a user standpoint and quite comfortable in the weeds with most systems. It took me all of 20 minutes to break both web browsers. I got some well-intentioned help, but the advice to change the OS just to be able to browse the web is a symptom of needing a more mature ecosystem. I'm not upset at all - I can wait, but this isn't a beginner's machine right now.

Edit: this may be blasphemy, but I think the best way to learn Linux is to crank up a Linux AWS VM. When you break it, you just have to kill it and crank up another.
