I'd still recommend the x201 because this is what I am using. Anyway, we
started using other machines as well. I.e., the x250 is a good choice.
We just started to regularly test Genode on this hardware. When
purchasing, please make sure that the machine has AMT (for
serial-over-network support). Otherwise, you may not be able to obtain
low-level LOG data for troubleshooting.

With regard to package management, Emery is actively developing the use
of the Nix package manager on top of Genode. Even though this line of
work is at an experimental stage, I find the prospects for our project
very exciting:
