Re: Low-Cost Tablet PC suitable for Debian

Stefan Monnier:
it's android without the "I'd like to call home' parts, if you choose the
bare install.

AFAIK the bare install will still call home: every time you connect to
a wifi network it performs an HTTP request to a Google server in order to
detect whether the local connection gives you access to the internet or
not (and if not, it presumes it's a captive portal and offers you to
launch a browser to sign in).

I didn't install google 'services', so there is only some device statistics communication with lineageos.org, which can be disabled in the privacy menu.

Anyway I doubt, any lineageos powered device would have "2-4 USB ports"
or  "Serial RS232/485 port".
