[Freedombox-discuss] [ask] booting and configuring
Opinions and speculations requested, please.
What is our group vision about this:
I mail off a headless freedombox to some non-hacker
friend (who, let's assume, has a computer
and Internet connection at home already, but
who isn't a sysadmin or anything close).
He opens it up. Plugs it in / turns it
on. The package, I hope, has one page of
instructions about how to configure the
freedombox and start using it.
What does the process look like?
Does my friend have to have wifi?
Or a spare ethernet cable and a router
with a spare slot? What if his wifi
is password protected? Does he
telnet to the box? Use a web browser?
Or does it include a (possibly tiny, minimal)
display and my friend is supposed to plug
in a keyboard?
What is a realistic and desirable "vision"
for the "first 10 minutes" experience?
