I am inclined to agree especially with the recent meltdown and spectre

Who knows how many other terrible bugs exist that lie unknown...

But yeah, its better just to make new laptops from scratch for that purpose.

I previously disagreed with this with the exception of using librebooted
devices, until again, those two bugs... opened my eyes.  In the future,
I will buy your stuff for sure.

I await the future of eoma68 standard. I hope you will make a new libre
card at some point... but till then, I will use the libre tea computer
card probably.

You are correct, and I wish I had realized this a lot sooner.  My bad...
