The deep dark blackness of a screen with no backlight, the sound of a linux console screaming, laptops running (almost) silent in the night (and day), debian-installer on consoles unseen, welcome surprises landing late in the release cycle… and we must not forget the patches, oh, the terrrible patches!

The Pinebook and the Pinebook Pro are two affordable laptops running on the arm64 architecture and are reasonably well supported in Debian Bullseye (for some values of reasonable).

What works? What doesn’t?

Existence is rough for an arm64 laptop. Can two different Pinebooks learn how to share?
