Does anyone use #Parabola GNU/Linux? I know #Arch is a great project, and they have awesome docs for everything, but I am not aware of the superficial differences between Arch-based and #Debian or #Fedora-based, or how those make it into Parabola.
I don't avoid it because of this, it is just that I do a pretty decent job of installing the warez I want.
Is there a default WM in Parabola?
@maiki Keep in mind too, that if your looking at Parabola for the EOMA68-A20 the A20 model isn't going to be TOO beefy either. Its going to be about on par with a low powered netbook in the horsepower department.
Subsequent generations of the EOMA68 line will be more powerful. Their is allready chatter about a beefier Rockchip based card immediately following the Allwinner based run.
My point being is that if you need virtualization the Gen-1 card may not be well suited for you.
@satchmoz I wasn't thinking of virtualization on EOMA68, just noticed that in the review.
Honestly, I want a dinky little machine to run in CLI only. That is what I wanted a PocketCHIP for, just a little terminal machine. I like the portability and simplicity, and I am also a demon with ssh. But I can never justify a $50+ expense for something like that.
I mean, I am sure I could install a terminal app on my mobile, but I don't...
@maiki My personal dream is for EOMA68 in a year or two to nail this form factor here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/gemini-pda-android-linux-keyboard-mobile-device-phone#/
