/flt/ - Friendly Linux Thread

Intended for users of all levels, including absolute beginners.
There are three ways to try Linux, you can:
1) Install a Linux OS on a VM (Virtual Machine/VirtualBox) for "safety purposes"
2) Use the Live ISO directly without installing anything, that way, you can get a "full Linux experience".
3) Go balls deep and overwrite everything with Linux (not recommended)
If you are serious about switching to Linux and if you have Windows dual-booted (recommended for pure newbies), we recommend you use it exclusively for 2 weeks, and avoid Windows dual booting for that period of time, or it's likely you will start retreating back to windows instead of getting used to Linux as your new home and working onmaking it feel the way you want it.
>Recommended for beginners:
-*buntus except vanilla Ubuntu (Unity)
-Debian (For Broadcom devices, use an ISO that includes non-free firmware)
-LinuxMint (a.k.a Ubuntu LTS + Cinnamon)
Before asking, please find the answers to your questions in resources.
Please be civil, notice the "Friendly" in every Friendly Linux Thread.

Does /g/ know anything on Chinese JXD/GPD android tablets?

So /g/ , I am 27 and I have literally nothing to ask my folks for Christmas. They keep bugging me to ask for something, so I started looking into these Chinese handheld Android gaming tablets. I want it mostly for emulation, especially now that PSP emulation is working well on Android. There's a few models of JXD, JXD-S7800B, JXD-S7300C, JXD-S7800A,. JXD-S5800 ... and a few of GPD, GPD X9, GPD Q9, GPD G7, GPD Q88+
Most look like gigantic PSPs, but the GPD XD has a Nintendo-DS style clamshell design, despite having only one screen.
Most of the specs are pretty damn similar, as are the prices. I am looking to toss in a microSDHC card and have all the NES, SNES games and some PSP games on there.
Does /g/ have any experience with these chinese android tablets?
