New Raspberry pi 4 anounced #40522
Well as expected SM or Ubuntu for that matter does NOT work on the new rpi4
So will need to wait for the guys at Ubuntu to get on board and help with this, it’s not at all just down to Jasem....but I am sure time permitting he will do his bit.. :)

New Raspberry pi 4 anounced #40538

I wasn't expecting a Pi 4 until next year. This new version will give performance to an already solid INDI/Ekos implementation on ARM and an even more enjoyable IoT solution for Astrophotography. I expect INDI/EKOS eventually to support planetary and solar imaging at some point.
Other interesting projects might now become a reality like for instance automated meteorite detection/mapping from an all sky camera... The sky is the limit!

You'd be far better served using a metal detector to find meteorites than a telescope with Stellarmate. ;) Meteors are inbound and have not YET, but are about to hit Earth. Meteorites are the remnants of a meteor AFTER it hits Earth. Perhaps you meant asteroids - rocks in an orbit within our solar system?

New Raspberry pi 4 anounced #40887
I have decided to join the Raspberry Pi 4 club after all and have a 4GB model on the way.
I chose not to get the Odroid-N2 due to a few reasons.
1. Wide community adoption will have better long term support. *This was the determining factor.
2. It looks like it will have ample processing power
3. Better price.
4. Ubuntu MATE for RPi4 is officially in development

Can I ask, where you have seen that Ubuntu Mate for the rpi4 is officially in development, as I don’t think so...!!?

Hmmm, I don’t think so, that Wimpress guy, can’t do anything until there is Ubuntu support, which he has no control over, he can’t start until that support is in place....

I figured it would take some time. But it looks like it will be longer. But at least the devs have expressed they are looking into developing Ubuntu Mate for Pi4.

But that Wimpress guy is THE creator of Ubuntu Mate. This was also picked up by Forbes Magazine:

Also, by looking at the Ubuntu Core thread referenced in the Ubuntu Mate community forum, I see that an experimental Ubuntu Core 18 image for the Pi4 is now out (albeit only for dev purposes). Things are moving fast!!

Lol.... :) I do t think so, Wimpress is just a cog in a very big wheel.. :)

I would say Martin Wimpress is a pretty important cog in the wheel. He is one of the co founders of Ubuntu MATE and now leads the project. More significantly for us, Wimpress is pretty much the only one working on Ubuntu MATE's Pi support and he can only work on that when Canonical doesnt have him doing all sorts of other things. It was a lack of his time as well as some technical issues that made the Pi3b+ ubuntu mate image take so long to get out. I am sure he would love some help. . .

What are the arguments against using Raspbian Buster a Debian flavor.? It 's ready, it works, has a large community of active developers and users and has the LDXE environment. For me it's great.
