Since they have expressed interest in this sort of thing, i want to gift a learning pc to my nephews. I thought the raspberry pi 400 would be a good option, installing a linux distro on top of it.
Since my sister and brother in a law are not quite fluent in this sort of thing, and my nephews (6 and 7) are a little young to do the system maintenance themselves, I thought for now I’d do the maintenance myself, updating it once a week. However I have only used Arch systems like Eos updating at least every two days. Is that enough or should I expect problems on a regular basis?
So that’s the plan. Now: the pi400 ships with just 16gb sd - sure I could upgrade, but for now that should suffice, right? No swap config runs, or should I take something bigger right away?
And: Is eos even a good option for this device in general? I am open for suggestions if it is not. It has a quad core arm and 4gb of ram.
I’ve read that Kde is by now quite easy on the hardware, so Id take that. Any input and experience on similar projects would be appreciated.
