I also run SM OS on a pi 8Gb with SSD drive. Disadvantage: pi 4B+ wifi for me was flaky. I had problems
with wifi connectivity from my LAN to the pi on 2.4Gz channel but remedied that by running an extender at
the opposite end of the house and 2 floors up from the main router. I added a wpa_supplicant file to name
the SSIDs and priorities of the router/extender and I set the priority of the stellarmate hot spot to the lowest value. I use
VNC Viewer (RealVNC) to remote to the pi from anywhere inside now.
