The Q4OS development team is pleased to inform Softpedia today about the general availability of a brand-new edition of their Debian-based GNU/Linux distribution for PINE64 boards.
Q4OS is a lightweight distro built around the old-school Trinity Desktop Environment (TDE), an open-source initiative that tries to keep the spirit of the KDE 3.5 desktop environment alive across all GNU/Linux distributions, and while it's been engineered to run on 32-bit and 64-bit PCs, there are also Raspberry Pi builds available.
However, this news comes as a surprise for us, because we did not expect to see Q4OS run on the PINE64 64-bit ARM single-board computer (SBC), but now it does and dedicated images are available for download from the official Q4OS PINE64 Wiki entry if you want to try this Debian-based OS on your PINE64 development board.
