we were discussing on irc with you.. i thought i'd bring some of that here.

i think we should look into opensuse as a base. it will allow for a more
minimal os than something like arch or gentoo (though maybe on par with
debian). mostly because simon has been around with us for years and years and i
trust him not to vanish. i think working with him to at least investigate would
be good.

so my take also is to strip out as much as we can get away with. that would
mean no lightdm. no plymouth. have the system boot right into a fixed user with
no login (have e optionally ask for passwd on startup).

keep the thole thing as simple as needed then fill these things in as we have
nice solutions.

we can just stick to 32bit arm until this is resolved.
