Here are my requests:
1. Release patches for GPD Pocket as a separated project.
I personally think it is very difficult for GPD to maintain Linux distribution continuously for long term by alone from the viewpoint of maintenance cost. If they add some customization to Linux kernel and others, please consider some approach as following.
a. Release separated patch about GPD Pocket.
-> It helps user's community can apply them to other Linux distribution or future release of Linux.
b. Upstream first effort
-> GPD engineers and user's community can request merge to upstream OSS project. we can co-work about it for long product life cycle and protect users from security issue.
2. Update bios feature from UEFI
Linux users need Windows just for upgrading BIOS/some device firmware update. Some HW vendor provides its update feature from UEFI menu. It's better for Linux users.
Thank you GPD guys for planning super notebook suggestion for small PC fans:) I hope this project's success!!
