I do not think we should choose new hardware. We should not choose *any*

What we should do is develop a FreedomBox software stack that runs on
any Debian system. If we got that right we can *advice* users about the
hardware that is best suited to run the FreedomBox software.

Building a FreedomBox software stack is the most difficult task for the
FreedomBox community. Any developer who is interested in the FreedomBox
is needed and should be welcome. Let's not exclude people because they
don't have the chosen hardware.
