Hello David,
Thank you for sharing the news. It seems likely that the Pinebook Pro
will be delivered faster than the EOMA68 Laptop. In comparison with EOMA68 I miss the
modularity and the libre and environmental aspects.
In my experience one has to expect quirks and workarounds and be patient when a project
does not proactively communicates how libre it is.
