Yes, I understand that the OI team is small.
I will continue to use this test version but install it on a PC directly.
Currently the system is fast on boot. Mate envirionment works well.
The only problem encountered is the gcc compiler. Maybe I don't have all
the packages installed. But I don't know about that. If someone can give me
the list of packages to install to compile, I'd be happy.
