The Pi 4 is awesome for home tinkering, you can run docker and as long as the software you're trying to run compiles on arm64, containerising them is relatively painless.

This looks pretty cool. Which OS is it capable of running? Any popular distros?

Well, the rebranded Raspberry Pi OS is debian based. There's plenty of choice in ARM based Linux distros, Arch Linux Arm is pretty neat as well. And installing it is a breeze compared to desktop Arch!


Largest limiting factor is the ARM architecture and iirc proprietary GPU. Raspbian(Or now Raspberry Pi OS) does supply a good driver for it, but might be complicated to set it up on alternatives - haven't looked into it.
