I use a pair of PC Engines Alix systems, which receive only legacy support.
The company has more modern hardware, currently they recommend their APU2
platform over Alix or APU systems.

I've only had personal experience with the Alix, and with support from PC
Engines.  The Alixes have been rock-solid, wonderful systems.  PC Engines
was also a pleasure to deal with for direct purchase, and for initial support.
They managed a DOA compact flash drive issue for me and I would consider their
APU2 if I were in the market for newer tech.
