If I used SUMMER20 already once, can I still use it again?

Thanks, closer look shows Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Linux based operating system so I'm going to pass. If it was Android or Win10, it would be tempting.

Thanks for that important tidbit. I won't be buying this I guess.

Your priorities are backwards. Ubuntu is a positive sales point. The reasons these are so cheap is the Ubuntu Intel compute stick (First gen Bay Trail) only comes with 1GB ram and 8GB storage whereas the Windows version comes with 2GB ram and 32GB storage.

Also the 2nd gen Cherry Trail version was released this year but not sure if it is worth the price hike.

You CAN upgrade it. Others have done the work and figured it out
Linuxium Blog Post on Upgrading Compute Stick to 16.04 [com.au]

Only real sticking point is the 1G of RAM. The 8G of flash can be worked around because it has a microSD card slot.

See the wiki post at the beginning for the rest of the stuff I found. This would be a good buy for those who like to tinker and work with things. Looks like the potential to be a fun project.

the ISOs include a patched kernel to provide the missing functionality it means no automatic kernel updates from Canonical

Not sure if that really counts as working
