  • Call me old fashioned, but I would have hoped for plug compatability with Arduino shields, without having to deal with anything else. As it is the BeagleBone still looks pretty good. ie- more IO pins with better connectors (and none of that non-0.1 inch space mess).

  • So if I understand it correctly arduino style pins have been brought out (are they the right voltage?) but they are right next to each other, so mechanically it’s not a match for the arduino shields. So to make it work you’ll need some messy, ugly conversion board to split the pins. Please tell me I’m wrong and that the board designer didn’t mess it up this badly.

No public wish lists :(
