Fedora IoT Is Not IoT

Posted at — Nov 16, 2020

I really wanted to run my microservice on Fedora IoT. But alas it’s not IoT. The idea that Fedora IoT expects various services to be run in containers sort of misses the point. Secondly, Web Based Provisioning seems to indicate that you need an account at the Fedora MotherShip but I’m double checking that now…

In the meantime the GUI installer is for Novices… Not to mention that the OS image it 1.13G for the ISO. That seems useless for an IoT. What kind of toaster are they expecting me to build.

And there it is. The FAS installer. There is just no way this is a good idea.
