So can this run on other-than-Raspbian?
Would rather not use Raspbian with all its excess stuff. The smallest
TinyCoreLinux “piCore” for RasPi is very small and (re)boots VERY quickly.
(esp if booting moves from SD card to USB MS partition).
The applications here for the RasPi seem to be headless and don’t need
desktop - the UI is on the web/phone.
[Coming from a RTOS consumer embedded background, I like products
that can boot in very short time. I know connectivity issues can take
longer, but the idea of having to miss something in an extended time
window is worrisome and that window should be shrunken…]
