Raspberry Pi

Oh dear oh dear oh dear.

What an almighty cock-up. First of all, quality control goes out of the window as thousands of boards are produced with the wrong 8p8c connector (the irony) then I wait six months for the order, it arrives and within three weeks there is a better version on sale. You bastards. Add this to the non-open sourceness of the thing as it has proprietary blobs of code in it, and you can stick it. Do not attempt to tell them how you feel, the “board wars” are alive and well, with acrimony, bannings, wailing and gnashing of teeth. I recommend Olimex, they are true open source, no whining, and an industrial quality product. They will happily listen to suggestions from their user group and elsewhere, and their r&d to production is incredibly swift. Raspberry Pi? non merci.
