Up and running!
Had to set the PineBook time/date manually as it thought it was last summer and I'm glad I noticed it was set to a UK rather than US keyboard before I typed too many passwords, but it seems to be functional at the moment.
Will be taking it home to run updates outside of my employer's firewall.
How is your cat liking the pbp?
@RussSharek It is made of warm so he approves.
And what are your thoughts?
@RussSharek So far, I like it. No "buyer's remorse" as of yet, to be certain.
I'm going to try to use it for work as much as I can this week to get a better feel for the performance. I'm expecting it to be similar to the Raspberry Pi 4s I have in my classroom.
I'll look forward to seeing how it fares as a daily driver.
What distro are you running on it for your test?
@RussSharek Sticking with the Debian with custom MATE that came with it for now.
Good to know. Running Debian here. How is the custom build different?
@RussSharek I've never played with MATE before so it's hard to tell. Only recently figured out the default is 32 bit Debian though, so I might soon be installing something different anyway.
I'd love to know how 64bit Buster flies on that thing.
