Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week
the Ubuntu version (preloaded) can be quickly upgraded to have x11 server and ssh server, so i have it controlled from mi PC instead of using the hdmi interface.
The IO can be accessed thru bash, or C, or python, very easily.
Small / compact footprint.
the board comes without external power. So do not forget to buy any iphone-type adapter* and a micro USB cable ( both, very cheap at DX ) if you plan to use it with wall power. I did.
* must deliver 2Amp.
I also purchased from DX a 8 relay board, because I've built an automated appliance control with network capabilities to be accessed thru internet.
All the software tools are included: vi editor, C compiler, etc.
Power input should be something else robust than micro usb.
It costs almost the same than a genuine Arduino plus the network interface; AND it includes Ubuntu + tools, instead of a software design kit to be installed on a PC.
I really loved this board.
