NomadBSD is just perfect for testing purposes or fast installations on hardware.
You can duplicate what you've configured on your USB dongle to your real device easily with their install functionnality.
It' also very comfortable if you're looking for a fast GPU/hardware configuration solution. It detects very well.
I have a maxim related to hardware compatibility : if it doesn't work with NomadBSD, don't waste your time.
I send hw-probes each time I test a new device.
Personnally, I don't like openbox... But it's not complicated to switch to XFCE or everything else after.
Actually it's FreeBSD 13.1, but you can update it to 13.2 without any problem.
freebsd-update -r 13.2-RELEASE upgrade
freebsd-update install # you'll have to enter the command several times, that's normal
