Re: Does the foundation produce the Zero under cost?

No, yes. Why? The Zero WH $15.00 model does not have any restrictions on quantity. The restriction on the Zero & ZeroW was put in place so that "everyone" could get one at a price where Raspberry Pi Trading and Resellers made a small profit and hopefully Resellers could also sell other items.

Re: Powering a RPI 4 + 2.5" HDD connected to USB 3.0

I'm not sure how the Y-cable would behave - ideally it would feed power via USB 2.0 and data through USB 3.0 but it might not work like that, instead sharing the power, drawing whatever it could over USB 3.0 and whatever it could over USB 2.0 and backfeeding as well. Ok, forget the Y cable . How ab...

Any updates of kernel / firmware / packages, if a...

Thanks much. I'll give those a try.

BTW, I must use 9 because I am setting up Freeswitch thru FusionPBX and they only support 9.

FusionPBX does not state Debian ARMHF support ??? Raspbian is a fork of Debian ARMHF !!!
