Re: advice on Raspberry Pi and alternatives?

Hi all,

There has been some discussion[1] on the OpenAg forum about problems
between Raspberry Pi, Arduino and rosserial

They are reviewing their architecture and potentially eliminating
Arduino and I suggested[2] they consider following a strategy where
people can use alternatives to Raspberry Pi, because of the binary blob
needed at boot and also because it just seems smart to have some
flexibility.

Can anybody make any practical suggestions?

The Debian wiki[2] has a list of possibilities, but which alternatives
are best supported by Debian / Raspbian if somebody was starting today?

2. https://wiki.debian.org/RaspberryPi

Allowing that this is a Debian ML rather than a Raspbian forum, are there still blocking issues for a headless ("Lite") distro which doesn't require local video etc.?

For headless operation, is the situation the same for both 32- and 64-bit variants of the distro?
