my very first SBC (Lamobo R1) is finally completely FLOSS (free libre open source software) supported :D  So to say the best product from SinoVoip, sadly I never received an answer from  @Nora Lee @Lion Wang  about my suggestion  especially point 1 & 2 would be easy and a huge improvement of the hardware.

Digital Signage Player,  based on Webbrowser, WordPress, LAMP - using archlinux|ARM.

 

Sounds cool and as it has been tested on Raspberry Pi 3B, I guess it should easily run on any mainline Kernel supported SBC :)  beautiful step-by-step setup.

 Quite funny is the name of the repository for german speakers: https://github.com/boschkundendienst/raspisignage     this means:  BOSCH customer service ... while his avatar is not :huh:

Bit off topic, that's what the topic is for :)
So I've been using the NanoPi M4/V2 for over a half year as main desktop and left my pc off most of the times. That today gave me a nice advantage in my electrical bill.
While the price of electricity goes up, I consumed 8.8% less only by using SBC's instead of my pc. And that not for a full year even. I can still improve with LED lights. And keep using my SBCs.

This does give an example why using ARM can be very benificial. I even made a quick video about it. Not really Armbian related. I don't think I need to convince any of you of the advantages of using arm.
But it is a good thing to think about where we can save money/energy in replacing x86 machines with arm boards.

Arm also has disadvantages off course. Less user friendly, do it yourself... I also talk about that. So you don't need to see the video any more actually, bit if you do, please enjoy.
Greetings, NicoD

Don't forget the 'grey' cost. I do not replace my "old-power-saving-bulbs" because of the grey energy needed.  Same thing as driving an old car until it breaks or buy a new more efficent car.
