What is a FreedomBox ? And why do you use it now ?
With a journalist background, i came at first to FreedomBox website and
wiki searching some specific terms on Internet early last month :
"Debian personal server", "Debian personal mail server". After starting
reading the wiki and watching conferences online, i had quickly an idea
about the vision. I had more difficult times to understand what it
concretely was before reading this document made for the version 0,6 :
After a month, i can explain to others, giving a short or complete
definition according to their technical knowledge :
Fbx is introduced as a personal server / using free softwares / with
decentralized communication features, / it can also be a router, / be
installed on a computer / or SBC / according to cost and convernience
reasons. A recent post on the mailing list is talking about similarities
with digital media players potentially.
I am still wondering what is the most common use or if specific projects
around FreedomBox are already live.
