The ODROID-C2 is esteemed to be the most powerful low-cost single board computer available, as well as being an extremely versatile device. Featuring a quad-core Amlogic processor, advanced Mali GPU, and Gigabit Ethernet, it can function as a home theater set-top box, a general
purpose computer for web browsing, gaming and socializing, a compact tool for college or office work, a prototyping device for hardware tinkering,
a controller for home automation, a workstation for software development, and much more.
Some of the modern operating systems that run on the ODROID-C2 are Ubuntu, Android, Fedora, ARCHLinux, Debian, and OpenELEC, with thousands of free open-source software packages available. The ODROID-C2 is an ARM device – the most widely used architecture for mobile devices and embedded 64-bit computing. The ARM processor’s small size, reduced complexity and low power consumption makes it very suitable for miniaturized devices such as wearables and embedded controllers.
It can run Ubuntu, Android 5.1*, and other Linux OS distributions.
ARM 64bit is a very new platform and some system specific Linux softwares are not working stably at this moment.
So there might be the compatibility issues frequently and we may need longer time to fix the issues.
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS is also on the alpha stage and it causes the instability and incompatibility problems.
