Now is this an interim device or what?
Well, a couple of years ago I bought a NUC DN2820FYKH to use as a small database server for my Raspberry Pi group. Not wanting to install Windows, I looked around for a Linux distro and basically ended up with Fedora: at the time, installing other distros was fraught with problems, and having read how many other users had bricked their BIOS without too much effort I was understandably worried.
Suffice to say that *despite* Intel's BIOS setup and overly-picky HDMI requirement I got the thing set up, and it runs reliably to this very day.
However, looking at Intel's "support" forum, I always got the impression that they were developing the device as they went along, based on the number of problems that unfortunate users had. "Oh, you're using 'this' version of BIOS? You should be using 'that' version - give it a try can you, and tell us what happens?" I'm actually getting pissed off with vendors that ship a barely-ready product and expect us to finish their R&D. It looks like the same for that Intel Compute stick - rushed out, allegedly incomplete and basically an interim product.
So, is this one an interim device, or what?
