I recently bought an Arduino UNO, after experimenting with my Netduino+2 for some months. The most important reason was speed, toggling a Pin on my Netduino @170MHz i would only get 35kHz at max, whereas the Uno would give me 8MHz. Now Arduino released the Due, which also uses ARM architecture, a Cortex M-3. Would it be possible to make the Netduino apperar as a Serial Port on the Computer and accept native Programs like a Due? Essentially it's a similar Processor, just with some more storage and an FPU + some other new features.
I don't mind loosing object-oriented programming at all, since I can just reupload Netduino Firmware again. But it would be nice to have at Serial and maybe Ethernet available.
For a start, it would already be a huge success if it would just 'work', without any libraries, timers, etc. set up (I'm fairly familiar with using registers for that now).
