Not bad.

  • File expansion not necessary
  • Windows has difficulty using the hostname if you haven't added Bonjour
  • If you run the vendor's install scripts using sudo it shouldn't be necessary to chmod the file attributes, you'd think
  • If this works, then it won't need to add the Desktop install step... Oh wait, no, it installs the PIXEL/Desktop.
  • Interesting information at 12:00 minutes into it regarding the need to indicate the network in the config.yaml -> accessControl section. We should remember this one. I really don't like how he edited his config.yaml (leaving "salt" at the wrong indent level like that for so long). :skull_and_crossbones:
  • The reboot command doesn't need "now" as an argument; he's confused that with shutdown.

I like the particular display he's purchased since it has the orientation-adjustment button. :+1:
