Well, no need to wait for the Linux port - AndroNix installs and works fine on the Cosmo. It's on sale at the moment as well. Got it running Ubuntu 19 and KDE (other distros and desktops are available) via VNC. Root not required.
You have to up the font size, but perfectly usable. Got Thunderbird, Chrome, Firefox, Filezilla, LAMP, LibreOffice, GIMP etc running well.

It depends on what are your needs, because Termux works without rooting and is as such pretty useful for development and other text or spreadsheet tasks at the price of changing some habits in order to adapt to the command line. You can even install a LAMP stack without rooting your phone, not bad.
