I don't know where you have found anything about Freedombox image for
RPi 0 and makes you angry against this little board ?

I'll watch it asap... thx for the link on this video website under the
name of Google ;)

You said "I prefer the orange pi one because it has a hdmi connector."
Ok ? Do you remember ? So I don't know why you prefer something that has
the same connector like all the others ? :p
It's like someone saying : I prefer the Volvo brand car because they
build cars with 4 wheels :p

Ok why not. 1Go can be just enough if you want to use it as a "desktop"
computer. Think about browsers using more and more RAM when surfing the
web ;)

Yeah, why not. You know what you have for this price ;)
10$ mini electronic board that can be used as a development/test board,
not a "computer" as I can name it.

Sorry, I'm not absolutly agree with all your ideas.
You are free to think that, but sadly I can't continue to answer.
