Sure, you run off an SD card of whatever size you want.
But we stray on to something I know well here - the minimal complete
packageset for Fedora is much smaller than the "minimal" install.
I have used Fedora since it was RH 8 (I am in fact an RHCE), and went
quite far into studying the minimal complete packageset with silentcat a
few years ago
in addition I did a cross-distro (used in real products) based around
full Fedora rpmbuild
and in recent times, Fedora not only has full ARM host build but moves
into cross -- and this is a Redhat initiative --
the pieces are coming into place for stock Fedora -- or other distros,
it is simply that I know Fedora well -- on this kind of device IMO.
This device is not an embedded device at all in the old sense of the
word, it's a slightly behind the curve laptop and the overall trend is
that appropriate distros will follow, cross being no impediment.
