  • I agree completely with this comparison. I have just received my first Edison, and i have not yet switched it on because i am waiting for the mating connector. Seen on my bench side by side with RPi the difference is incredible. RPi is a masterpiece, but it is absolutely not wearable. And Edison is a FULL FEATURED X86 machine, not a RISC ! The only problem of Edison is the pitch of the connector, 0.4 mm is too small. Up to 0.65 or 0.5 mm pitch, hand soldering is, if not easy, at least possible. Below difficulty increases quickly. Considering than there is still some room on the board, Edison should be more hobbist-friendly.

No public wish lists :(
