Ungh... I'd love to see this, but it's about 4 hours past my bed time. 😢 That said... I'm terrible at getting to bed on time, so don't be surprised if I'm in the chat. lol.

@linmob @PINE64 @plasmamobile I've tried the same image but it didn't boot... Also, after an updateof the 201130 one (pacman - Syyu) it stoped booting, it was stuck at the splash screen. Have you tried to update it?

@deedend @PINE64 @plasmamobile There weren’t any updates available yet before I bricked the install at the end of the video. First boot was very slow, yes, but as the video showed the image ultimately worked.

@linmob the build I tried three days ago was faster than the one on your video and keyboard worked fine in gtk aps(firefox). Though I didn't tried it from an sd card, I flashed it in the emmc.

@apathetic_bystander Was it Manjaro or Neon? I think they might have the pre-release version in KDE Neon. Running from SD card certainly does not help with speed, sorry about that.

@linmob It was manjaro and firefox was preinstalled I think.. Except from some glitches here and there(and the sound issues) the UI was quite fast. Also I think that the keyboard was a bit different.

@apathetic_bystander Interesting, so they must have changed quite a bit in that short time!

@linmob @PINE64 @plasmamobile my first boot was super slow too, second one not so much. Third one... Well, was after the upgrade, so it was stuck at the splash screen

@linmob @PINE64 @plasmamobile Dont assume the battery indicator is 100% accruate but really enjoyed getting a feel of what power consumption was during the video - I really liked the look of Plasma Mobile compared to Phosh (since we've seen so much of it a change was nice)

@cyr @PINE64 @plasmamobile Oh, I had to pause, stop, rerecord and so on. Also I had to do some chores in between, I recorded it over a period of about 2,5 hours.

@linmob @PINE64 @plasmamobile I thought as much, and usage will very so much between individuals. I think my late purchase of the Manjaro CE puts me in a December shipment timeframe wise, eager to see what it's like for me
