Pioneer FreedomBox Home Server Kits
Pioneer FreedomBox Home Servers are produced and sold by Olimex, a company which specializes in Open Source Hardware. The kit includes pocket-sized server hardware, an SD card with the operating system pre-installed, and a backup battery which can power the hardware for 4-5 hours in case of outages. It sells for €82.
The word "Pioneer" was included in the name of these kits in order to emphasize the leadership required to run a FreedomBox in 2019. Users will be pioneers both because they have the initiative to define this new frontier and because their feedback will make FreedomBox better for its next generation of users.
