@waxwing I have two big problems with this project:
- the stupid, restrictive software licence: https://github.com/Start9Labs/embassy-os/blob/master/LICENSE.md
- the catastrophic hardware choice of trusting everything on an SDcard
Have to disagree on that, even those kind of SDcards (and I do use only the endurance ones) would only survive a few months running swap or a busy lightning database: https://github.com/rootzoll/raspiblitz/issues/924#issue-541479926
@FreePietje Correct, they followed reason reason and updated the 0.3.x package to have an SSD.
One of my points down.
Would gladly see them embrace a FOSS licence too.
Totally. Using a SSD is peanuts compared to a 'wrong' license.
IANAL (and I don't care as I have no intention of using/buying their stuff), but I wouldn't be surprised if their license is incompatible with the license(s) of the software they use.
License shows intend/mindset, which is WAY more important.
Also, if you think you can secure people's money with a single device, you likely have no idea what you're doing.
