We've been listening to feedback that there are too many password prompts in the on-device installer and that the dedicated #SSH user is confusing.

New workflow:
* sshd always disabled
* confusing prompts removed
* follow steps in the wiki postmarketos.org/ssh to enable sshd and to disable password auth


Shout out to @mobian who is also using the on-device installer, contributed quite a few cool things and always had the dedicated SSH user dialog disabled 👋

About time I join the party here on #mastodon. Or rather, after careful consideration of how much of a timesink this will be vs. the benefit of being able to do some not-directly-pmOS related toots, I decided this makes sense for me 😀

Ukraine getting most points from the viewers tonight at the Eurovision Song Contest made me lose hope in humanity...
