We are therefore considering dropping support for both the original PinePhone and PineTab once the current kernel branch reaches end-of-life, ultimately turning those devices into high-tech paperweights.
No decision has been made yet, but this matter is being actively discussed.
Discussion on Hacker News.
My PP became nothing more than a tiny tablet when the modem died after less than a year. I liked Mobian, but it’s clearly now a dead end on the PP.
Thank God the PineBook Pro had been reliable. I’ve been using Armbian, which has been a good experience… but if Purism released a general ARM-installable version, I would install it post haste.
I LOVE MY LIBREM 5!
Well Purism does provide QEMU Byzantium images, although they only come in the plain variant.
I have considered trying that on my workstation, but I doubt the PBP has the horsepower or RAM to support that.
