Pinebook Pro & PinePhone shipping progress (2020)

They have really tried to automate setting up everything for you.  It will walk you through timezone, language encoding, root password, the lot.

Well, guess what?  It hasn't been 'sooo simple.'  I'm not an operating system developer 
who does this stuff every day.

Why do you have to be so condescending?  Do you actually think this is an intuitive process?  I was so excited to get this pinebook pro because it would already have KDE Manjaro installed on it, on an ARM board no less.  This is a frustrating process that makes me want to tear my eyelids out.  So forgive me if I'm not clicking my heels together in excitement at having to figure out how to do it myself after all.
