Notes

Variants

1. Desktop

Use armhf variant with Ubuntu Mate as one that offers the best compatibility and performance.
Ubuntu Mate is not available for Rock64 as it is simply too slow.

To improve YouTube video playback in Chromium install h264ify plugin.

2. Bionic / Container Linux

It has Docker Community Edition / Docker Compose / Kubernetes-admin installed for easy Containers use.
