    Customised Linux-based OS out-the-box, which will probably be a reskinned Ubuntu LTS like every bugger else uses, but in theory the hardware will be totally compatible with Windows if you wanted to buy a licence and install it yourself.

    After the last 17554 updates it is currently a Ryzen NUC running customized Ubuntu.

    Edit, ninja'd by Gareth.

    Honestly, this update raises concerns.
    How did they get this far WITHOUT realizing a case made of eighteen different pieces was going to be more expensive and time-consuming than one made out of three? I've got zero manufacturing experience, and know the old plan was dumb.
