Mekotronics R58X, another Android TV alternatives?

Posted (edited)

Hi, I stumble across this very powerful Android TV alternatives, it can be capable of others since it can load other Linux OSes.

Has anyone got their hands on this yet? 
Or can Linus team do a review on this?

I cannot find this on Aliexpress unfortunately, and the only website I can buy from is their official? Not sure if that is legit.

Android 12 isn’t Linux.  I forget when they were able to diverge it but it was well before 12.  It’s more “Linux like” with serious holes in it. 

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

From the information, it appears to also run Ubuntu/Debian.

Then someone has messed with it.  Whether they are also here is another question.  The place I would look for info in this case is the places where those versions are available.

Messed with it?  I'm not sure I follow.  The link the OP posted is to the "official" (albeit shady af looking) site which lists compatibility with Android 12, Ubuntu and Debian.  According to reddit threads on it, the ordering process is strange but is apparently possible.
