    Phoronix: Panfrost Gallium3D Is Now Running Kodi & Some Games For This Open-Source Mali Driver

          Wasnt the machine Alyssa was writing it all on a chromebook? If so how would the Pinebook benefit the development any more that that.

            I do not understand your question. Pinebook Pro will use a Mali gpu that Panfrost is targeting.
