Security isn't simple

"You can only install additional software in the form of Snap packages, but this is simple, and you don't even need root privileges to do it – as an experiment, we installed htop and bashtop in seconds."

Does it at least require sudo? If not, then _anybody_ with SSH access can install additional software. To my mind that violates least privilege. I tried to look it up on ubuntu.com, but the "IoT app store" link is the same broken link as the "Full disk encryption" link. s/featrues/features/

From ubuntu.com/core : "Imagine a world where every device is trustworthy."

What we get instead is a world where every device is trusted.
