Sounds good. I think I'm going for NUC.

What do you mean by all the hardware? What might not work?

Two of my computers (one holds all my email and the other all my local Git
repos) are over six years old. Neither has suffered a hard drive failure, but
I just replaced a failed drive on my laptop. I need at least two new computers
to take over if they fail. I also need a computer (which could be one of them)
to drive a plotter; the new computers and the plotter will be in the other

Travis does only Linux and macOS, its Linux is Ubuntu Trusty and Xenial (I'm
running Bionic, and I think Trusty is too old for the version of CMake I
require), and AFAICT it doesn't have big-endian.
