- The Atomic App Concept…”It All Starts When a Nulecule Comes Out of its Nest”
Author, author! Why Red Hat's CEO wrote 'The Open Organization'
That book – The Open Organization – is about creating a successful business in today’s enormously fast-moving technology climate. The only way to do that is by eschewing the old ways of doing business – including a top-down hierarchical approach – in favor of a new approach that emphasizes soliciting and embracing everyone’s opinions, letting go of “command and control” and moving away from traditional management comfort zones.
With development boards/embedded SOC products like the raspberry pi becoming more mainstream and powerful these days, I'd like to propose a shootout of lesser known and alternative products, especially ones that you own and have a use case for. To keep it tidy, I'd like to propose the following format -
Price (in USD)
Freedom Factor (proprietary blobs etc. this isn't strictly necessary if you don't know)
[anything else, use cases, company ethics and so on]
Note that they don't necessarily have to be cheap, boards such as Nvidia's tegra development boards are fair game, and I'd really like to see a few esoteric and expensive ones, even if they're not popular.
I'd also request that you refrain from reposting, if a board you like has already been posted, just give it an upvote to show it's popularity and then any discussion points can go in that posts' thread.
I'll let someone else take the rpi2 for the karma. All posts are considered on-topic as long as the thing comes on a single board, it could be full eATX or the size of a usb stick, no limits. They should also be currently available.submitted by themadnun
