i'm writing a custom web server for a project (esp32 based)

Src: RPi FAQ
what is the sense of this?
option #1: stop production of pi2 and sell only pi3

i need to reinstall windows 10.
but i don't have an ISO.
ok i will Use Media Creation tool from M$ to get one.

me: so Wikipedia it's wrong, RFC 5246 is wrong, and you have right?
me: Ok. (aka fuck you!)4
