I plan to use Linux exclusively (i.e. no dual boot) on my new Latte Panda.

I followed the documentation to http://docs.lattepanda.com/content/1st_ ... u-1604-lts where there is a link to this Ubuntu-img-16.04-for-CherryTrail-20180418.iso image at http://bit.ly/2JcDtiQ.

This image is over a year old. Is it really the latest image?

Is there a reason not to install a generic Linux distro, such as Ubuntu directly from ubuntu.com? What would I be missing? I'd rather use the official Ubuntu source, all else being equal.

Is there a forum or channel specifically for Linux on the Latte Panda?
