    I've always seen LattePanda boards for people who want a Raspberry Pi, Jetson, or ODROID but can't handle anything that isn't Windows or x86. I suppose for some, that is worth the extra money and power consumption.
    I'd say the only significant advantage of a LattePanda is the far better PCIe support.

    That's exactly why I'd consider it I've tried multiple times making Linux based systems work for me with many different distros but ultimately it just doesn't feel worth it everything I want to do I'm constantly googling

    I've found the #1 reason why people struggle with another OS (regardless of which they're coming from or switching to) is they keep trying to use it like the OS they came from. Use them the way they were designed to be used and in most cases, the experience suddenly becomes pretty smooth and intuitive. I don't prefer Mac OS, Windows Metro, Unity, or GNOME 3, but when you try to think about what they're trying to do, they really start to make sense and I totally get why people like them. I didn't have to look up how to do things as often because once I understood the design flow, I could just figure it out. Other times I realized "this is not built to operate this way". After all - why use a different OS if you want it to be like the thing you came from? Embrace the differences, keep an open mind to alternative methods, and it becomes an enjoyable experience rather than a frustrating one.
    I'm not saying you don't do any of this, I'm just giving general advice.

    Anyway rambling aside:
    The vast majority of distros don't offer anything compelling over another. Some have a larger and more helpful community, others might be more efficient, while others are more user-friendly, but you can pretty much just narrow your choices down to 5 distros and the rest are a waste of time. At least it's not like the 2010s where it became totally overwhelming.
    Also: if you're not familiar with Linux, do not use an ARM platform as your way to learn. ARM has a much steeper learning curve than x86, primarily because it doesn't have a BIOS. I'd suggest you take some crappy old computer to use instead.

    Mostly all I have used linux based distros for old media boxes that are almost too low end to use with windows (think brazos apu's and old laptops with fried batteries) and for the most part ive gotten what i need out of them like kodi, internet browser, and vlc but i always run into some compatibility with something different on every machine like one will refuse to recognise a wifi module or another will refuse to recognise a graphics adapter or wont connect to an external monitor and many other issues but yea thats my experience with it i like it but remembering all the command lines is just too much u need encyclopedic amounts of knowledge in my experience
