Yes, and I think this is the BIG problème with LeMaker: they hurry up with the hardware to follow the market but are not thinking about end users.
If we take the example of the BananaPI/Pro : the board is really EXCELLENT, but the support is poor and not adequate for average end users. Only advanced users like us can make the board really useable. That's the big difference with the Raspberry and what makes the rPI a big success.
I can understand they are counting on community support : ok, but in this case there must be clearly indicated for published software/OS :
- what is working / not working (USB3, hardware accelleration, ...)
- problems on way
- when next release
- UPGRADE procedure : how to switch from one release to another one without full reinstallation.
Frankly speaking, I don't care about BananaPI because I built my own Gentoo and I'm perfectly happy and autonomous with this board (the problem is the lack of central knowledges sharing plateform, everything, is geopardized around the web).
But the Guitar is a totally new board and I don't have to time to restart from the begining.
