First off: this came 3 days early. Dang, DHL!
This machine really does have an amazing build quality for the price.
I'd expected to have paid $400 USD at a DISCOUNT to have a laptop with this nice of a chassis.
KDE runs wonderfully.
The screen is crisp, clear and bright.
Connected to my Wifi instantly.
It even came fully charged. Dunno if that's intended but it's nice.
If you have ANY interest in an ARM-based lappy GET IT
The last 3 days I was fighting with fixed point arithmetic and #Mandelbrot set calculations for the ongoing project on #nand2tetris… still not satisfied with the result in the emulator, but learned sooo much… references: https://spin.atomicobject.com/2012/03/15/simple-fixed-point-math/ and http://www.righto.com/2017/06/one-hour-mandelbrot-creating-fractal-on.html

Is anyone “mad scientist” enough to try to synthesise it?
I haven't used #async much in #Rust yet, but it can also be a burden, when some lib has choosen a runtime like `async-std`, but you use another one like `tokio`.
I think(!) they provide compat libs, which can bridge between async runtimes, but not sure.
Recently, a "User Story" in the async foundations group has been merged that talks about this:
Also, they rather let the community come up with the best possible design of an async runtime and pick the low-level parts that make sense to include in a std lib (like futures).
Other #GC languages for example don't need to care so much, they just ship the async runtime with the language.
But, yes, this leads to a bit of a churn.
Not sure what I should think about all the Big Tech companies joining “forces” in the #Rust foundation…. Any thoughts?!
