TFW: Raspberry Pi foundation force-pushes a microsoft gpg key and vscode repository to everyone in a package update. Without letting the community know. Or explaining such a strange decision.
If people wanted microsoft's code on their pi's, they'd enter in a few commands to add the repo and the package themselves. Just like any other piece of software. Why make this the default for everyone? RPi Foundation get a huge check from MS or something?
You have a #pinebookpro and ...
- want to run a stable version of #debian or #devuan,
- want to use only official mainline versions of kernel and u-boot without unofficial patches,
- don't want to use non-free software / proprietary blobs,
- don't want to use unofficial 3rd party repos?
Meanwhile, most of this is achievable. I've collected some bits of information on that and condensed them in an article I recently posted on my personal website:

Testing artix myself for a while.
I wanted an arch system without systemd for developing on the pinephone. Artix fits the bill very well.
I too prefer openrc. Also use openrc with calculate-linux - a Gentoo based distro, rock solid too!
My default for an NVIDIA graphics is mxlinux. I've only had one problem in 10 years or so (simplymepis before) & the forums helped me solve.
I'm checking out artix myself. Quite stable!
That sounds interesting 🙂 thanks
Just had a look, & although looks good, is outside of my price range. Looking for something around half of that or a little less.
In Australia, I can purchase 4 or 5 Nokia 1's!
Thanks, I'll keep a look out. I enjoyed my Z which I still have - but no updates & as a 32bit system, getting a bit old!
Secondhand also an option!
