Re: Intel are really good at expensive processors

I've been burned by their IOT offerings.

Galileo I --- $70USD and it can't bit bit bang as fast a $5 Arduino nano ...

Galileo II --- insane development environment based on Yocto, you have to jump through hoops for a nice RPM base system ...

Edison Breakout 1,7V IO and accessing the I/O a real pain

Saw their Arduinio 101 ... and at 4mA per I/O channel can't drive nice LEDs ....

I can get a PI zero (which would be an Intel killer if it had wifi/BT on it) for $4 and it can run standard linux ..
