Beelink Mini S12 pro first look

Recently, I took the plunge and acquired the Beelink MINI S12 Pro, primarily driven by my curiosity about the capabilities of the N100. As an avid enthusiast of all things tech, I saw this device not only as a potential infrastructure and testing hub for 412linux but also as a promising candidate for serving as a home media server. Having had positive experiences with Beelink devices in the past, I embarked on this journey with high hopes and eager anticipation. For fellow Linux enthusiasts, the installation process can often make or break the user experience. Fortunately, my transition to Ubuntu 23.10 on the Beelink MINI S12 Pro was seamless, with zero issues encountered during the setup. However, it’s worth noting that the device arrived preloaded with Windows 11, a minor inconvenience that was easily remedied.
