Incorrect. FreedomBox is a federated server, not a P2P system.
P2P is applications installed on user-facing devices, talking directly
to similar applications on other user-facing devices.
FreedomBox is a server - i.e. applications (services) talk to similar
applications and to *other* applications (clients) installed on
Both FreedomBox and P2P are different from centralized servers, but in
different ways: P2P puts all burden on the user-facing devices and
requires redesigned protocols, whereas FreedomBox allows continued use
of same client tools and protocols, just stretches federation to an
extreme one-network-per-user structure.
