Conversely, if the question of which software components we need to be
able to run to fulfill our vision is still up in the air, any discussion
of the required hardware to run that software stack is premature.  ;-)

For what it's worth, one target of the initial reference implementation
will be the "Dream Plug" from Globalscale Technologies, for the simple
reason that the foundation has ordered a number of these to use for
development and to meet the commitments made to our Kickstarter donor
group.  More on this later.

At some level of abstraction, yes it's that easy.  But my point with
this email was and is that it's time to move beyond the abstract and get
specific.  We need to replace "these components" in that sentence with a
list of Debian packages required, for example.
