      It does look like an attractive piece of hardware, at a reasonable price.

      Sadly, won't boot linux ( according to posts ), at least not yet ... thats a no go for some of us.

        Somebody reported Arch Linux runs on AP34 on Amazon. Maybe some one here could give it a try on AP42? I have returned mine to Amazon already.

          I managed to boot linux on the AP42.

          First i Installed rEFInd form here: http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/

          This boot Manager allows you to to boot linux kernel with efi stub. Most modern linux distros have this.

          I finally installed opensuse tumbleweed on the emmc. by deleting win10. Everything run great now.

            I manged to install linux to it.

            I installed rEFInd from here: http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/

            this boot manger instead of the original win10 bootmgr enables the boot of linux
            kernels.

            Finally i installed opensuse tumbleweed on it. All Hardware is recognized and works.
            Wifi is iwlwifi, bluetooth etc.

            hddparm for emmc gives 255.19 MB/sec read performance.

                      This is well worth a go I use it on a few intel tv box's

                      Turn your smartphone into a universal remote control

                        Thanks blinkone, but a classic remote controller is easier for me. It can stay near the mini pc and everyone can use it
