TOPIC: new categories of hardware

Dear h-node, please add "switch" as a category, as certain devices can be used with Free Software.
I would also support this!

@ ao : Which Switches do you know? I found the ones here, but they are to expensive for me https://h-node.org/issues/view/en/355/1/6b5110f0d0c17af156a22b0a8d05a6aa

Does it really makes sense to add a 'switch' category? If the switch isn't a computer (no management features) then it's automatically compatible with the standards it support. This is typically done by having a switch IC and no processor on the switch itself. This architecture is documented in a hack where someone connected an arduino to the switch IC to control it to add management features. If the switch is a computer, then I think it could be added in 'notebooks' like I explained in this bug: https://h-node.org/issues/view/en/355/1/8a737f9d18f8cf131922283571674bc5
