Those work, but they are tiny, dark, and recessed. Using them requires a tool and well-lit line of sight. In contrast, the button I added is easy and convenient.
I just received and built one a week or 2 ago. I don't have too much trouble hitting the power button with my finger, but the reset button is much harder to reach. Icould see some people having trouble with the power as well, thoguh I don't seem to. having something more prominent is a cool idea though I'm okay with it as is.
I have yet to use a serial connection on a PINE device, but I have worked on devices with serial connections since before the turn of the millennium and it's nice to have the option available.
it doesn't get happy
it doesn't get sad
it just runs programs
