just to give my experience, the guide was relatively easy to follow and everything went pretty smoothly apart from a few issues. for me at least it seemed letting the installer automatically allocate partitions based on free space is bad because it will complain it can't find the Uefi parition then ...

Re: unplug anytime ?

The most common way to set up a system like that is to have the main file system as read only. so if i partition a 16gb card say something like a 6gb root as read only then 10gb fat32 for read/write storage (due it it being a pretty fast fs without logging) would that mean it is safe to power down ...

Re: Why i had to take back my PI4B.

You won't see a change to the micro-HDMI ports - that was the only way they could squeeze two HDMI outputs onto a board that size. Yes, it's a bit annoying, but it just means you need to use an adaptor (or two). i saw someone suggested they could be stacked like the usb ports, that would work right...
