concerning the Yun on arduino.cc
As many of you know, there is a split with the Arduino organization. The
two are generally two Internet domains that encompass the two parties -
arduino.cc and arduino.org. To be clear on the separation, arduino.cc
does NOT have the Arduino Yun, but is creating a new product with a new
partner. Arduino.org has the Yun, Yun mini, Tian, Uno wireless - and
other similar products.
There are several issues for developers.
- what are the new products
- support for hardware
- support for software
- will some libraries still be support, like Bridge
- forum support
For .org, it is creating new products and we see them every few months. This is organization is being helped by doghunter.
Neither the .org or doghunter have stated any allegiance to open
source. The issue this creates is that some developer are unlikely to
contribute to the massive software pool mostly available on .cc One
small note, if you look on the back of the original Yun you will see a
"dog Hunter" imprint. It is underneath the Ethernet port, on the back
side of the PC board.
For .cc, which is known as Genuino in most
part of the world - expect the USA, they have struggled to produce
significantly new products, and their new partnerships
with Adafruit and Seeed have not yield any significantly new products.
The challenge is - how will they address the growing IOT market - no
response yet on this.
On the libraries, both groups appear to
be making advancement. However, new contributions are continuing with
.cc, not as much with .org.
On the support forums, .cc definitely had the advantage.
so there you have it... but of course you may also own a Seeedstudio Cloud or a Dragino Yun Shield
i like them all, but really when you can have a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B or a Raspberry Pi Zero
why? well, if you're a real-time hacker and have a need for speed, low power consumption, the 'Yun' model may work for you - best of both worlds?
