[Freedombox-discuss] arkOS



Yes arkOS is great.. At the Internet Identity Workshop #16 in May this
year we had a session where we looked at both FreedomBox and arkOS:

<http://iiw.idcommons.net/Self-Hosted_Personal_Clouds_%28FreedomBox_and_Raspberry_PI%29>

But since then I think arkOS has evolved a lot! It's pretty amazing what
Jacob is doing.
Here's an interview where he talks about the project, and about
differences to FreedomBox:

BTW he is looking for support:
