You have TinkerOs as basic desktop use but how can you have basic desktop use without a modern Firefox or Chromeos ?? Armbian is the only one I see that offers a basic desktop use for the Tinkerboard

You can install browsers like Firefox and ChromeOS via the command line. But you're totally correct, it's not as convenient as Armbian with its basic desktop!

Thanks for your reply!
After a couple of months of use I find this to be the worse board I have ever purchased, it is very finicky, crashes easily and basically a very bad experience.
There are so many good boards out there at the moment, it is a pity I wasted my time on this.
Lastly, Armbian is the only distribution with which I have the least of issues.

The answer is very simple.. If you can afford it get a SoC: Rockchip RK3399; CPU: big.LITTLE,Dual-Core Cortex-A72(up to 2.0GHz) + Quad-Core Cortex-A53(up to 1.5GHz) NanoPi-M4 it is an amazing system, if you search you'll find lots of reviews, here is one by NicoD you may want to look at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgj9mR6Pl0 it is my favourite SBC now, I have had enough of The Asus Tinkerboard S Crashing , there are too many problems with this thing if you use it with a HDMI and connect too many things to it. It is now my DMZ machine running a LEMP server and if you leave it it the corner it won't give you too much trouble and so I have not wasted my money. You won't be disappointed with the NanoPi-M4 though ! Check the FriendlyElec site for a distributor https://www.friendlyarm.com/ In Europe I recommend https://www.antratek.com/

Can you install WoA (Windows on ARM) on the Tinkerbox? I am interested in a little more power to run a MediaCenter and an AiO Windows-based emulator called Hyperspin.
Also, is there an HDD expansion board available? Pi 3+ has one that looks promising. (https://www.amazon.com/Raspberry-Storag ... B07DPD4WPP)
