Hello! I've been keeping track of Pyra development for well over a year now (seriously, you guys have something magical here), and a lot of my questions have been answered by either waiting for the news or doing a bit of extra research (whether within the boards or quick internet searches). There's just a few questions that have gone unanswered over this stretch of time. I could probably wait until the Pyra drops to get the answers, but since the community is so accommodating (from what I've seen anyway), I figure there's no harm in just asking. -Is there a remote chance of Dragonbox offering some kind of "Pyra insurance" or even some sort of "extended warranty?" What I'd want is some form of coverage in case of incidental damage or in case Wentworth Miller swipes my Pyra for use in escaping prison again. Sure, I could just pay for repair costs+shipping, but buying warranty or insurance would be easier on the wallet in the short term. Worst case scenario, nothing happens and Dragonbox gets a l'il sumthin' extra. -Would there be some sort of payment plan when the Pyra drops? I know this is a type of question that would be answered when we get there, and I know that I have all this time to save money until then. I'd just like to know if that might be an option down the road. I don't know about you, but ~$800+ is one hell of a dime to drop on a handheld. Perhaps a preorder+paying forward is the way to go right now, but that won't be an option after the Pyra is released. -Would newer kernel versions be officially supported for the Pyra? The OMAP5 got atomic mode-setting support merged into kernel 4.2, but Jessie (presumably what PyraOS will be based on) uses the 3.16 kernel. There's also power management improvements, audio cleanups, and EXT4 encryption in the newer kernels which may or may not be of use to the Pyra. I could probably just use a different OS and go from there, but I'd prefer to use the OS with the most support for the platform for obvious reasons. That, and I'm not very good at building my own kernels. -A premature, preliminary question, but what kind of hardware may be expected in future CPU boards? I know people were talking up Intel Bay Trail and Allwinner A80 in the past, but isn't open-source the mantra in this burg? Personally, I don't care, but the developers do. It will probably be a long while before any officially-supported upgrades or "sidegrades" get proposed (Nikolaus is a damn scientist, but I doubt his ability to work on 3 boards at once since he's also human). I'd just like to know what's realistic and, therefore, what to expect. Maybe something capable of OpenGL ES 3.1+ to be used with Vulkan. Or a Freescale processor to use the Etnaviv driver. -Any update on bringing the docking station to reality? I haven't seen any mention of it in a while, so it's probably shelved for the time being (not being a concern during active development). -Another premature question, but is there the possibility of a "game mode" or official "gaming-only OS" for the Pyra? As powerful as it may be, there's only so much the OMAP5 can do, and running a desktop and heavy emulator at the same time puts it between a knife and a wall. Perhaps something akin to what RetroPie is at its core could free up some CPU+GPU time.
