RiscV as a daily driver

Recently Christopher Barnatt on his YouTube channel ExplainingComputers has spent a week attempting to “live off the land” in a purely RiscV environment. In some respects it a great demo of how far things have come. A large portion what you would expect to work is in place, however some basic functionality such as the inability to use Yubikeys to authenticate via the browser (probably an issue with the libu2f-udev libraries) and the inability to run complex application with many dependancies such as Kdenlive/Blender.
