      Description

      Our Raspberry offering is really aimed at the DIY and small business folks, that often start with the HW by installing the HW vendor provided OS. Over years we have had several requests to support Raspbian OS for this HW, recently Raspberry announced a 64bit debian based native OS.

      Our Qt DC and QBSP has been based on Yocto eLinux mainly for convenience reasons, it has been easy for us to create among other B2Qt stacks.

      We should investigate if it would be better to support HW vendor provided native OS instead. What would that mean for delivery channel, QBSP, integration, Ci etc. Also, would this improve the HW support across Raspberry product lines?

      Note that Raspbian recently added Vulkan support: https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/vulkan-update-were-conformant/
