Vanilla @debian is installed/running on my @olimex TERES-I laptop via debian-installer. If you experience a black screen upon bootup, there is a workaround: remove the installation media at the debian-installer boot select menu. What does this mean? You can easily create your own installer media (a ~90MB image) to install the operating system the way it was designed to be installed. You don't need a custom image sourced from a vendor.

On top of that, DistroWatch has also listed the Pioneer Edition #FreedomBox sold by @olimex on their official page for "Linux/BSD Compatible Hardware"! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

You can find it listed on this page:

NEWS: #FreedomBox has been added to the DistroWatch database!πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

This means that our operating system has received official recognition by DistroWatch and is listed alongside the world's major Linux and BSD distributions.

ST Microelectronics released very interesting new STM32MP1 SOC with Cortex-A7 and Cortex-M3 targeting industrial applications -40+125C, looks like perfect candidate for new OSHW OLinuXino LIME board!

Can we protect privacy and the planet at the same time?πŸ€”

We put it to the test using:
1. @olimex's power-efficient LIME2
2. The lightweight #FreedomBox server software
3. A solar panel

We shared our results at FOSSCON last week. Read about it here:

ESP32-POE-ISO was our first product with CE certification, today USB-ISO passed all tests too and can be CE marked Now guess which product is the next in line to CE test?

Need 4TB fast USB storage to backup or move files from one computer to another? Our New Open Source Hardware board adds SATA drive connectivity to any computer with USB host

Lime2-SD is small add on board which adds second micro SD card to OSHW Linux Computer A20-OLinuXino-LIME2, so now you can use two "disks" for file storage
