I find it interesting that the GPD Pocket can come with Windows or Ubuntu.

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/gpd-pock...-os-laptop--2#/

Having been burned by buying a Baytrail device, which can't run Linux without crashing, even with custom kernels, I'm a little nervous about whether CherryTrail fixes the bugs in the SoC design.

I have found an interesting post on Dingoonity: it refers to a post from another forum, it's a bit difficult to read since it has been machine translated from Chinese, anyway it seems as their primary market for the Pocket will be Linux users. The Pocket will run Windows too, but as a added bonus. This gives me good hopes that it will be well supported by Ubuntu.

there are differences, first of all this product for geeks, Linux enthusiasts, mobile computing and mild office users. It is very small, very convenient to carry, and solve the input problem. Can replace the mainstream combo laptop and tablet.

that's a good discovery.

one of the people posted about the X7-Z87xx CPU vs Apollo Lake didn't notice that the former is a Silvermont core, the latter a Goldmont which gained a bunch of new technology from the Skylake core.

I noticed GPD posted a beta build of their Ubuntu install, did anyone give it a try?

Dear Backer

Here is the download link of the beta version of Ubuntu, We hope senior Linux users can help us to test it, Just report the bug to us,We will collect all of information to make the final firmware of Ubuntu better. And for the person who not much familiar with Linux, please don't participate this test. We are wondering some unpredictable issue appears.

The Linux on Asus T100 is a good group for helping with patches to run on Atom processors
