    Same here. The problem with Raspberry Pi 5 in my country is their availability. And all of Orange Pi 5 variants seems to have excellent availability at their official online store on AliExpress and Amazon.
    There's some features in the RPi 5 that are quite attractive like being able to switch out PCI-e interfaces which the Orange Pi 5 doesn't seem to have, but the performance metrics are neck and neck, while the Orange Pi 5 has a 16 GB version. If you want to use it as a low powered desktop in a space premium spot, there's plenty of appeal there. I've got one such spot I'm considering out in a work shed that I've been waffling on whether buying a small form factor PC or either of the Pi5s. If I ever had to go DC only out there for power outage reasons, the Pis are a better choice (it's a ham radio shack I'm putting together).

    Orange Pis are looking pretty good about now even with needing their kernel cuz their own drivers haven't been accepted upstream yet.

    This is great news.
    I hope more ARM stuff will be upstreamed.
