<<FreedomBox is designed to be the software for a consumer electronics
device that is easy to setup, maintain and use. The project does not aim
to create a custom hardware device ourselves, but instead we plan to
support/customize existing hardware.>>

for connecting mouse/keyboard/usb key... everything needed for a
"desktop" computer.
