They're getting lazy.

HAY GATES, make your own singleboard!


I've used Basic Stamp and Arduino, never RB.

Gates is like the Borg.

The BASIC stamps were the original SBCs.

RPi will draw a nice little 4k desktop, but no h265 hardware, only h264.  So only 1080p video.  Not sure about the Ardinuo's video capability, but iPad and RPi apparently both use Mali video, and only as framebuffer on RPi.

I wasn't building mini workstations, I was using the stuff for experimenting in and for, outside world device control.. camera platform stuff, motion control, etc. Sensor based triggering, etc.

P Basic is easier and and more compact than C++


For fancier stuff, Intel Atom ! 12 VDC, lots of CPU power.

Hope is not a plan.

Apophenia is : “the tendency to perceive a connection or meaningful pattern between unrelated or random things (such as objects or ideas)”

Apparently, it is a version of Visual Studio programming environment for linux.  Some major linux distro already have it, so it has just been added to the raspberry pi repos.  If it is nothing more than that and an optional component, then maybe it is ok, but still something to keep an eye on.

But here it is in it's own repository on raspbian.

There was a similar protest when Silverlight was ported to linux.

https://www.maketecheasier.com/install-a...-in-linux/

It wasn't as popular as flash, and maybe eventually phased out with HTML5.

It left a Micro$oft development library on the linux machine, possibly leaving an exploit.

Micro$oft originally started to get into the Linux field back about 2005.  Micro$oft’s playing this game that it loves Linux.  Probably the same old extend, embrace and extinguish it’s always been.  But I don’t think M$ can win against Linux.  M$ previous rival Novell, which had a far much better Network server OS than M$ had, had acquired SUSE Linux.  Now Novell runs their flagship NOS on SUSE called SuseNetware.  But M$ is in on the venture with SUSE.  I think there was even a lawsuit between Novell and SCO about who actually held the rights over Unix.

SUSE is pushing proprietary M$ garbage for Linux.

The greedy just can't keep their hands out of a piece of the pi.
