I tried to like Pidora. Really did. It's not that I dislike "systemd" - I don't. I just hate that it seems most of the other hobbyists are using Raspbian. It's so annoying to find someone with a great tip only to discover that they're referring to Raspbian, not a system-d setup. Meh.
So, we'll see how this one compares. I've been using the Pidora from the beginning and got all the stuffs working that I needed so far right up to setting up a fixed IP for it so I can connect it directly to the Macbook Pro for working in coffee shops.
