Re: What's the best Handheld gnu/linux machine for 2017?

RPM is the superior format. Deb should die out already. Redhat Supremacy!

Re: GPD Pocket

7" definitely can fit in a pocket I have regularly carried 4:3 7.85" and 16:10 8.0" tablets in a pocket as well as vanilla 7" tablets in a pocket. It more depends on the type of pocket.
