In Topic: Question comparing Netduino vs Arduino

27 February 2015 - 02:32 AM

At Microsoft's current pace it shouldn't take any longer than another 25 years or so to resolve them. I too switched to Arduino a while back, after real life experience. It wasn't the IDE though. I still use Visual Studio.

The netduino is more like an arduino. To compare it to pi is silly to begin with, other than price. The former is a prototype platform, the latter is an end user computer.


I see the PI 2 has sold out for the second time in a matter of minutes. It must have something good about it; if nothing else a good reputation. Reputation is important in making business decisions, not so important for playing.

RPi is a proven device, also available in an embedded format (compute board).  They probably sold more today in 11 seconds than all others combined forever. It's barely second all time to Arduino, which IS a prototype platform like the Netduino.   If the hype to open source .Net to linux et al ever happens, it's just 1 more thing on a successful product regardless, but certainly not a dependency.

I'm happy to see the news as well. But I have to see an org chart before I even think of committing to a Software choice.  As much as I am a fan of windows development and .Net, I will start with linux for sure.


I've also just announced product, aimed at the Pi B++, the timing could not be better.

CW2, thanks for that. I believe you are in the true spirit of open source.  


I had looked at, ran into the 'it wont work because of ...' problems, asked on this forum, and received no replies a while back (maybe before March because I do remember searching the wiki). What is published there is certainly enough for a someone brave to attempt - although I'd bet it is more like a weeks effort, than a few hours, unless you do it every other day.  Just tracking down all the 'updates' is more than several hours. How much reading must someone do to understand the Cortex-M Thumb code linker switches?  


My point remains about the process being more sophisticated than the average consumer could probably accomplish. But, I do recognize 99.999% of open source users could not modify any code, but are all hyped up about Open Source anyhow, that's what marketing departments are depending on.


edit: I just went and looked at the wiki again, and I still can not find anything other than the 4.2.2 yargo stuff, with a bunch of "it wont work because of" comments, and nothing updated since 20113.  Perhaps it is displaying incorrectly in my browser.
