I see FreedomBox as not just one hardware platform that everyone must
buy to get the benefits but also as a distribution (pure blend of
Debian) that can make use of existing hardware.  A lot of hardware that
people have already bought or will buy for reasons other than FreedomBox
will be capable of running FreedomBox.  We will make available the
benefits of FreedomBox project to a lot wider audience if we don't
insist they buy the devices we support and instead support the devices
they already have.

From this point of view, we should support as many devices as possible.
 Granted that we, as volunteers, don't want to waste our time on less
ideal options.  However, we should allow people who already have some
less ideal hardware to track and contribute support for that hardware.
