Re: The IoT Crowd

It really depends on what the Things are. Most of them wont need anything as powerful as the current Linux kernel - you'd be amazed what you can do with a PIC.

As for things with slightly more demand if this Micro:bit thing works - well there's room for a kernel on that IIRC. Then it may not be long before someone makes a SOC of the Pi and that is more powerful than the average desktop of just a few years ago.
