In this state is Unbuntu fast/stable enough to be used as a daily driver?
can I get software from the software center app like how unbuntu is on my desktop or do the apps have to be designed specifically for the arm version of unbuntu? (I'm trying to get stuff like libre office, adacity and gimp running on it)
where is the latest info on dual booting to it? I got cromix 5.2.3 installed.
sorry if I seems to ask too much I'm still new to this
THANKS FOR THE HELP AND HAPPY HOLIDAY!
Basically any armhf distro will run, debian, gentoo etc but it will require prepping the rootfs to work with our solution. For now ubuntu 13.04 and arch linux are supported, also its pretty easy to use debootstrap to setup up your own debian based rootfs.
ubuntu/ linux can be easily used as a daily driver, we have working 2d and 3d acceleration so it feels like your working on an ordinary notebook.
Packages need to be compiled for armhf, but pretty much everything is compatible(all your above examples work fine.)
For info, look in the threads started by @workdowg
in the general section, we also have kexecboot, which is more flexible but does require some setting up
