Yocto is a must for your project, regarding the project evolution.
I made a project starting from an intel platform, then I port it on
raspberry, now on imx6 dual lite.
My application never change, the system services never change.
I need to change only the parts which driver the hardware.
You can achieve this goal playing with layers
If you made a good planning of the layers, the porting will be "easy2.

I am a lead engineer on project where we run a well-known Linux
distribution on-top of a SBC (Intel Quad Pentium processor based)
driving a 27” display. We have a 32GB SSD to run from, which we
partition with multiple EXT4 partitions to help with potential
corruption mitigation if the device is switched off ‘hard’.
But, with the well-known Linux distribution comes a lot of things we
don’t need, plus the potential ability to ‘break’ in to our
application which is running full-screen.
We basically need
QT 5.12 runtime (our application)
Modem (via Telit modem)
Is this something I should be looking to the yocto project for, or
should I be looking at a more ‘traditional’ custom linux distro.
The only other aspect, is that we have future plans to cost reduce the
application to be running on a Pi based, 10” display system …
Any thoughts and ideas would be appreciated.
