Could you write one or more pages in http://wiki.debian.org/FreedomBox
that record your experiences so the rest of us need not repeat them?

Right now, anyone who experiments and shares those experiments with us
is contributing highly substantial knowledge.

May I respectfully repeat: your experience in flashing, installing,
and testing three plug computers (different brands or models?) is
"something to talk about".

There are some folks taking a stab at using a particular set of
possible proposed solutions, but it would be helpful (to me, at least)
if they would publish their test configuration and how they are
testing it.  While we may need validation of the tests, we don't need
everyone repeating something that merely needs good documentation,
such as a step by step instruction of how to successfully flash a
particular plug.  Who knows, maybe the manufacturer would like to have
a copy of the instructions for their own support pages?
