I'm a brand new user. I chose this platform as the engine for a smart septic control system I have designed. While I normally prefer to design all my hardware from scratch instead of use COTS, I don't want to be on the hook to support it. It may have a long lifetime. That said I probably want to build and sell some units and in either case users will need to be able to purchase replacement parts or upgrades.
So that brings me to this: I read the NOOBS license and it states that it may be used for non-commercial use only. I may go ahead and use noobs for my development/POC but probably want to switch a distribution that is a standard GPL/2. I have worked under Linux on and off for about 20 yr (right now is an off - I've been writing windows drivers for the last 3 yr so I get a little rusty but it should come back.)
Anyone have any advise out there? (Sorry if this has been asked, search didn't turn up anything useful).
