@Luciano-S. Yea,. And what is funny is I got a Windows 10, 8" tablet (Signature Edition) for $50, which upgraded to Win 10 Anniversary edition with no issues, so I could work with and monitor my Omegas. I did go back and spend $25 for a BT keyboard/mouse combo. Everyone wants a tiny computer, but all these things out there from LattePanda to the ones in that video all require a bunch of dongles and cords to connect and run. The tablet is not the fastest, nor does it have the biggest storage, but it works for interfacing with the Omegas. Hell, I can use my iPad to SSH into the Omegas (also using a BT keyboard for sanity) and it works just fine.
Some of these single board computers end up needing so many things to get them working, that it just isn't worth it. Especially when they say these are "consumption devices" or set-top boxes. There are far better devices, and if you wanna put a Raspberry pi in a case with an LCD screen, it is probably cheaper overall to get a cheap tablet and swap out the OS.
I get it, people want to hack their own stuff because they can. As cool as the ideas can be, the market is getting flooded with these tiny computers.
I agree with your view with regard to the security of IoT. Although this blog I've come across (6 Reasons Why the IoT is the future of Industrial Organizations is only just an overview of IoT's future, it does tell a lot how we should be more concerned of how secure should we be when the time comes — since one does not need to get closer in order to do something harmful.
Yeah, having it in a simpler way would be more desirable sincere there are persons who aren't that much into technology. Anyway, thanks for initiating this thread. Got a lot of ideas from it!
This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into proprietary programs.
Here, we understand that 'your program' refers to OnionOS.
PS: By priority, I mean to say that I much prefer that all efforts be toward the Omega2 delivery, than pointless license evidence.
But thanks for the link you provided. It makes a nice distinction between Free Software and Open Source Software. I never devoted any attention to the difference. So obviously, OnionOS is Free Software (where the source code has yet to be fully disclosed to be able to build a nice Omega and/or Omega2 firmware painlessly ;) ).
PS2: My preference would be Open Source Software, but that is clearly impossible because of the OpenWRT's license.
