Software seems early days and I doubt the SoC is really the bottleneck as Anthony makes it out to be.

But $700? yeah… makes it a hard sale for what it offers right now.

Maybe in a year or two after further software improvements.

That’s the issue with most ARM SOCs. Same problem AFAIK with the Raspberry Pi and Pine64 products. We really need more mainline compatible ARM (or mass market RISC-V) chips.

I stand correct then. I wonder what the problem is with the JingPad in that case. Like, is there some weird hardware or chip that they’re using that only has proprietary drivers? Maybe the rounded tablet style touchscreen? Or are they just not making their own custom hardware drivers open source?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
