  1. The rule of thumb is there is nothing free in the Internet you have to pay one way or another

    At its re:Invent conference in Las Vegas, AWS announced the launch of Arm-based servers for EC2. Prices are very close to t3 types. a1.large 2CPU/4 GB RAM - $0.0510 per hour ( ~$37 per month) t3.medium 2CPU/4 GB RAM - $0.0416 per hour (~ $30 per month) https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/new-ec2-instances-a1-powered-by-arm-based-aws-graviton-processors/
  3. I wouldn't say OSMC is better. It is different. And it probably fits better for some use cases but not for others. In general, OpenELEC is considered a dead project, LibreELEC can be a better option. It has a vibrant community and it is in an active development.

    NanoPi NEO, ambian-config fails.

    🤔The wrong part is probably that it does not work for me. I only see the message on a terminal window and armbian-config is in kinda a loop, it repeats it all the time.
  5. Hi, There is a fresh new install. armbian-config fails with a message "There are no targets. Please check your drives".

    NanoPi Duo 2

    @guidol I suspected that but I've just received the confirmation from FriendlyArm So a Mini Shield can be used with a the model as well. I'm too lazy to copy-paste images here but when I tried to compare pinout diagrams of duo and duo2 there have been flipped upside down. So even an image editor would not help me to compare them. Check the images.

    NanoPi Duo 2

    @guidol I see. It makes sense. It is compatible with a shield board most likely. PS What a weird sense of humor 🤦🏻‍♂️ check out pinout diagrams of duo and duo2

    I don't get why there is Half-size SSD in options? (just a bug?)

    New Odroid H2 with Intel

    @NicoD Indeed. At least @odroid claimed they tested 32 GB and it worked.

    New Odroid H2 with Intel

    I think it can be a good option for a home server still. I'm probably wrong but seems like other motherboards in $130-180 price range only support up to 16Gb RAM.

    Recommended SBC below 20USD range.

    @tommy I doubt any SBC below $20 would provide an acceptable desktop user experience. Probably orange pi pc would be an option, but I've got no real experience with orangepi.
