Aye. That is likely true for the most part… but in my specific case there are reasons that I’d like to stay in the RaspPi family as much as possible, reasons that are largely ideological. ie: I think the rise of SBCs in general is a wonderful thing from a hindsight perspective (the kids now that were like me then? …a $35 deck-of-cards sized PC?) and in keeping with that I’m always on the lookout for ways to USE a Pi.
But yes. there are alternatives, likely better alternatives and it’s the same thing as me considering a different SBC to replace the Pi running OSMC with one that has SATA headers… but none of the clones-variants have the support and community of the Raspberry.
Right. I mean… for testing/development purposes I’ve been trying to minimize physical integration and limit my install to my bedroom with non-permanent devices (zWave bulbs as opposed to wall switches) but even still… I’ve broken my system a couple times a realized how truly necessary light and the ability to control it is for a human being to function properly.
By my count there are six options here.
Three are currently available.
One option simply isn’t possible at this time
Your “AND” conditional keeps available options at 3.
My “OR” conditional makes five options available.
What’s the point of making USB-on-a-3 wait on USB-on-a-4 becomes possible when the later has no real bearing on the former?
I didn’t misunderstand. I over-simplified. “OR” isn’t the conditional I was looking for.
