I disagree. It's a myth. Yes, it can be hard, when firewalls, load
balancers, 50000 users etc. are involved. It's the case when one needs
professional support. But for the hobbyist, how hard is it to install CODE
with a few clicks in Univention, or to follow my "5 minute" guides?

I'm sure you have done a great job for suitably-skilled people wanting a
quick evaluation, but the truth is that approach only takes you to the
point where the questions start. I have tried to get a LiOn system running
at home and have not succeeded in getting anything I can leave running for
my family, unlike the Asterisk-based phone system we are using (on a Pi) or
the NextCloud appliance we have installed (Pi-based).

If there were binaries for Pi, probably installation would be easy. In
fact, I think that Pi support would be a nice community project and would
not hurt any commercial interest.

There is already an armht/arm64 LibreOffice, both the one the Raspbian
folks distribute and a more up-to-date version in Debian (thanks Rene!).

There is also a work-in-progress Debian package, (again
thanks to Rene).

But I'm told it's just too hard to unpick all the Javascript packages to
make it Debian-installable.

So, if you can help get that sorted maybe we can have some easy LiOn Pi
after all! The ideal would be something that runs from the GUI as a
NextCloud plug-in that, given the location and credentials of a freshly
installed Pi, would squirt LiOn into it and configure both ends to use it.
