  • Thanks for all of the feedback. It may very well be a great product. I doubt I'll try it out but I can now see more value here than I did previously.

  • I'm not seeing the value here. Aside from SATA, it's almost spec for spec against the RPi 2. What's more, a few bucks more and you could have a MinnowBoard Max with an Intel CPU and USB 3.0. The arduino compatible headers are nice, but not at this price. Of course, I could be wrong and would like to hear what others think.

  • Is there an offline IDE/development method? The description says "The Particle Cloud has some great features for building connected projects, including over-the-air firmware updates, an easy-to-use REST API, and firmware development supported by web and local IDEs." I'd rather not be tied to a cloud-based development platform. I do see "and firmware development supported by web and local IDEs." but I'm not sure if that's referring to local development of firmware or userspace code. Thanks in advance for any clarification!

No public wish lists :(
