In a previous video, I noted that Debian didn't support the little computer's WiFi out of the box. That's because I was using the default Debian disk image. Switching to one with non-free drivers resolved the issue.

I also noted that the display wouldn't rotate in Fedora. That's because I was using the default Wayland display server. Switching to Xorg resolves the issue... but it also means that display scaling is set to 100 percent instead of 200 percent, and that makes text and graphics look tiny.

Have watched a few of his videos recently...

The more I watched, the more I realized this guy doesn't know very much....about computers and especially, linux.

And in turn is giving false impressions to people who watch and are not very knowledgeable..

So it goes....
