I have read that PostmarketOS is difficult to install, but for some devices, it's quite easy. I installed PostmarketOS with KDE Plasma Mobile on my Pinephone. Fedora Media Writer on Windows 10 was able to install the iso onto the SD card. Then I used that SD card to boot the Pinephone & install PostmarketOS onto the internal eMMC. PostmarketOS is so small & fast that it's not too slow on the Pinephone's meager hardware. Running it has been quite nice. Next, I will try to install it on a very old Chromebook (codename snow).

This is a very neat little operating system, I'm running it on my Redmi 2 and it's working perfectly. I recommend this to anyone who wants to learn something new about the way their phone works and how Linux is implemented on it. The installation procedure is surprisingly easier to understand than some desktop Linux distributions, and every interface feels polished and thought out. The package manager is very fast, although some applications are missing on the aarch64 architecture of the Alpine Linux repository compared to the x86-64 architecture
