It depends on what are you using the board for. I've never been able to understand why would someone use the board with exposed GPIOs mostly as media center.
And windows manipulation (desktop experience) in Mate and XFCE is on OPI better than on most similar boards (on Lubuntu it is little laggy).

Many people are using the Raspberry Pi as a media center. You can configure really much as you wish, it is not power-hungry, it's quite cheap and it can handle lots of formats.  
I don't think there is a comparible media center that you can get for this price. I'm using one myself. Playing music/videos or showing pictures from a hard drive, streaming music or videos and using airplay - all this is possible.

And if those small computers are able to replace a whole powerful computer for example just to watch videos or for office or for one's grandparents to have the possibility to browse the web and/or to use office tools it's cheaper to use one of those.

Additionally, I'm not the only one who is using sbcs for retro-gaming and with the gpios it's possible to build your own handheld. There are multiple such projects on kickstarter.

So users are very glad that developers like you work hard for us to achieve this.
Thank you very much for your work and images. I hope I could - maybe - show you why a working mali-driver is wanted by the community.

Yes that is true. But i think such cheap boards like Orange Pi2 or Radxa Rock Lite suffer from poor support because manufacturers do not have enough money to invest in professional developer team working on linux kernels

Mayby we should croudfound someone to prepare for us working drivers for mali400 ?

@loboris: everything you achieved so far, you did it for free?

@zhao_steven: you should say something, people need you ....

My biggest problem is: kswapd0 often needs 100% cpu usage. I try to use swap space but I dont have any success. Somebody can help me in this topic?

More ram would ne really nice, if somebody wants to use this board as a server then 3G ram is essential. 3G would be really unique on this type of computer.  I definitely buy one. For me usb3 also important becouse of sata speed.

Count me also in for a 5 THz HexadecaZilla KillerCore, 4 TB RAM DDR9 memory and fiber optic network connections for $30. Preferably with 24/7 online and phone support!

Ok... time to wake up now. The orange pi H3 series boards are definitely "the most bang for the bucks" you can get at this moment. Pricing is great, and even the (community like Loboris!) support is great compared to the price. Some things you have to figure out for yourself, but that's the fun of it. So please let's stop this discussion and let's get back to progress!

All my work is for free (well, I've got OPI-PC and OPI-PLUS for testing...)
I'm in absolutely no way related to the OrangePI manufacturer.
I agree with you that the manufactorer does not have the money to invest in software development, if they sell OPI-PC for 15 US$ I can't imagine how they can have any profit at all.
