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).
Yup, Raspbian Lite, which is based on Debian armhf, would be the one to go with. The Desktop version has licenced software.
