yeah umbrel is trash. i will try unbrel soon
Care to say what is specifically bad about it?
I think that for any serious node one should start from a bare bones linux installation.
Can't see myself holding serious amounts (e.g 1BTC for my risk-tolerance) in something that's early phase, node.js, abstracts everything away and etc.
It's a good opportunity to dip your toes.
you say it. barebone linux + bitcoind + lnd/cln, not docker-container from questionable sources
