Listener Questions

  • @leimon asks: What would be your top three recommendations of which OS to run on it and why?

  • Anonymous (who prefers to remain private) asked via email:

    • Is the PinePhone convergence bar meant to be used only when the phone is fully charged and without the bar plugged into a power source? Or is it okay to plug the convergence bar into a power source when the phone is docked?

  • What is the best way to back up the PinePhone Beta?

  • Follow up question, is PinePhone convergence okay for email/note taking or too much lag?


Before we sat down to record this, Peter talked to Danct12, creator of DanctNIX/Huong Tram Linux, an Arch Linux ARM based distribution for the PinePhone and PineTab.
