I have decided to join the Raspberry Pi 4 club after all and have a 4GB model on the way.
I chose not to get the Odroid-N2 due to a few reasons.
1. Wide community adoption will have better long term support. *This was the determining factor.
2. It looks like it will have ample processing power
3. Better price.
4. Ubuntu MATE for RPi4 is officially in development

Can I ask, where you have seen that Ubuntu Mate for the rpi4 is officially in development, as I don’t think so...!!?

Hmmm, I don’t think so, that Wimpress guy, can’t do anything until there is Ubuntu support, which he has no control over, he can’t start until that support is in place....

Read this and look at the last post...

I figured it would take some time. But it looks like it will be longer. But at least the devs have expressed they are looking into developing Ubuntu Mate for Pi4.

But that Wimpress guy is THE creator of Ubuntu Mate. This was also picked up by Forbes Magazine:

Also, by looking at the Ubuntu Core thread referenced in the Ubuntu Mate community forum, I see that an experimental Ubuntu Core 18 image for the Pi4 is now out (albeit only for dev purposes). Things are moving fast!!

I would say Martin Wimpress is a pretty important cog in the wheel. He is one of the co founders of Ubuntu MATE and now leads the project. More significantly for us, Wimpress is pretty much the only one working on Ubuntu MATE's Pi support and he can only work on that when Canonical doesnt have him doing all sorts of other things. It was a lack of his time as well as some technical issues that made the Pi3b+ ubuntu mate image take so long to get out. I am sure he would love some help. . .

What are the arguments against using Raspbian Buster a Debian flavor.? It 's ready, it works, has a large community of active developers and users and has the LDXE environment. For me it's great.

The argument against that is that there really only are KStars packages for Ubuntu which get built by Jasem. There are KStars packages for Raspbian and Debian but they are very old and don't contain the latest drivers etc. It is possible to build KStars and INDI yourself but that's tedious. See for instance

No arguments here...
I am using it now with latest full INdI and Kstars, built from Source, running nicely, headless using XRDP to control from windows laptop, this is the only way to get the full 4K video over Remote Desktop, it won’t k over any VNC versions, the max with those Is HD... :)
