Hi! We currently have a few happy users, but our porting work is not yet
complete, so if users need a particular software they either have to build it
by themselves or ask us to do it. But I can say there's progress everyday, it's
mostly in hack state :)
Also, this doesn't mean Parabola isn't useable at all, I for instance am
running a quite stable XFCE desktop, and I even used the yeeloong to stream
a conference (where I burn the audio card too, but that was another matter).
You can find some screenshots here.
Is there something in particular you need? So far we have found trouble with
