Orange Pi Neo will be powered by Plasma desktop

Featuring the powerful Plasma desktop environment, users can enjoy a sleek and customizable interface designed to enhance productivity and streamline workflows.

it will be the first ALPM-free version of Manjaro with focus on flatpaks to add additional software. As desktop environment we have chosen Plasma 5 but might adopt Plasma 6 when released. Having an immutable OS is needed for this product. Also user don’t have to track dependencies and other issues you may have with a rolling release model. You can simply update your system via the SteamUI and install additional packages via Discover from the desktop mode. We will provide several update channels for you to choose from. This way you can even help us to find bugs before the stable channel gets the updates. Also SteamUI gets monthly updates similar as on the Steamdeck.
