The most important part of the PiKVM, and one that not all KVMs provide, is
that it can provide a boot medium. You can upload a disk image to it, and
it provides the disk to the controlled computer as a bootable USB device.

The PiKVM OS version runs write-protected in normal operation, so it's a
bit more robust. You normally only run it writable to change configuration
or upgrade. I would only do that if I was on site or coming there soon.
