no my question was real. I have a gen-8 i3 nuc with ssd as my backend and a few frontends - mac and nuc. While the video is OK it is not stella. I have not tried my rapi and I have (for another project) a rockpi 4.

(these are cute rapi like boards, that can run on m2 flash, 6 core)
(They can run debian-buster) but my build attempt failed

I'm going to install android and try the myth-android
I wanted a critical apprasial.
I have gleaned nice things about Shield so I'll try rockpi.
