See Linux-Kernel Archive: [PATCH v2 1/2] arm64: dts: rk3399: add support for firefly-rk3399 boardThis is good news. The newest ARM64 chip I’ve been wanting is going “mainstream”, with not just a kernel the FireFly maker can love, but everyone else. It’s not a perfect setup, but it’s a start and shows there’s life in this chip with users like me. That board certainly has the power I need to replace my current server but it still doesn’t support SATA directly. I would have to use the single Ethernet or USB3 interface to get to big/fast storage. Still, it’s affordable and can be extended through PCI-e. You can even buy a set-top box using the chip today at a very nice price. This would make a far better client than the Odroid-C2 as long as you love Android/Linux… I guess there’s a way I could put Debian GNU/Linux on that.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. I do not care whether my solution is the same as yours. I like to think for myself.
My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. I have been blessed by working in schools where students and school systems have benefited by good, modular software easily installed in most systems.
I have shown GNU/Linux to thousands of students and hundreds of teachers over the years and will continue in some way doing that until I die in spite of the opposition.
