    who even uses BB anymore. There are far lower cost, faster & smaller solutions out

  2. Ray Knight says:

    Where else can you find another solution with 2 programmable real-time processors for just $39 (current price of BeagleBone Green)?

  3. Calvin Slater says:

    Lol if you only knew. The processor on BB is prolific in industrial and commercial automation embedded devices. But yeah if you just want a cheap toy to play with there are better choices. For development of serious products start with BB.

  4. Kevin says:

    Yes, having built products on the AM335x, the BB and it’s community are a huge advantage. The processor has excellent support in the mainline kernel, there are lots of SOMs based on the same reference design, and BB support is standard in all the various build systems. It’s a great board when you want to build an embedded system with lots of peripherals, rather than a PC-like system.
