Won't wait for software support "coming soon", think this board is dead for non-developper.
How to get Rock64 xenial image working, DDR4 only difference?
The ubuntu image they supply for 16.04 works out of the box.
The kernel doesn't contain a lot of the standard ubuntu modules.
The huge upgrade for this is the 4GB of ram. That makes a huge difference. The DDR4 is great too. Also the form factor is the same as the pi.
In general it is my fault to have high expectations. Think now that competitors like Intel do not want Linux Desktop running on such low budget mini-PC. Arm doesn't make it better. Cellphones same issue, no Linux or practicable Windows to run with hdmi adapter as desktop pc. Firefly is jumping from one to the next board, no time to finish software support, hoping next linux board supports linux better. On Raspi2b+ works kodi perfect in HD, lag internet browsing.
