Exactly. When did you last see a server that couldn't PXE boot? Workstations? Every distro has a live CD/USB nowadays.

If your embedded system is borked, it's much more likely that you'd simply reflash the whole system, surely? An embedded system is not going to provide much of a recovery console to fix things.

this is totally wrong, small embedded linux system is 1000X than those servers/desktops, and we design a recovery scheme to it.

What do embedded systems have to do with this? You'd hardly install Fedora on an embedded system anyway.
