I have a question. I am trying to install Home Assistant for the first time. I have an Intel NUC that I want to run Ubuntu on. Originally, I was going to install it in docker, or a python venv - (still learning about Linux). However, the recent discussion about deprecating Home Assistant supervised on linux makes me think that this may not be the best way to go. The website talks about 3 ways to install HA -
1)HA Core in a virtual environment,
2)HA supervised which is home assistant and the supervisor (soon to be deprecated) in Linux, or
3)Home Assistant in a VM with Home assistant core, supervisor and Home Assistant OS
From What I’m reading, the supervisor helps to keep HA updated and makes it easier to install addons, etc. That would be a good thing I would imagine.
I guess I’m not totally clear on the advantages and disadvantages of each install method. I also want to maintain the ability to add other software to the NUC (camera recording storage, file backup and storage, plex server, etc) I am also brand new to both linux and HA, so I am wondering which install would be the best. I am vaguely familiar with Ubuntu at the moment and would be comfortable continuing down that road.
