The target for the Freedom Box is a plug device. These have
800Mhz/1.2Ghz ARM processors and 512MB of RAM and at least 512MB
storage. While I'm sure freedom could be achieved with an embedded
device and for some use cases would be a preferable platform that
isn't one the stated goals of this project.
