Re: About how usable/stable is ARM64 now, in particular Rockchip, > what about PCIe and XHCI?

I don't know about that particular machine either but in general for
longterm use watch out for the SD card.  I have 3 Raspberry Pi
machines and all was fine for about a year but the SDs were gradually
failing. One finally stopped booting and badblocks shows over 3% of it
is bad, which caused weird random sporadic problems.  I've got an
adapter on order to plug an old fashioned hard drive into USB, it
looks like that's the direction many of the people in the Pi forums
are going, either DIY if you've got spare hard drives around or just
external drives.

No, I won't  call it "climate change", do you have a "reality problem"? - AB1JX
