This could have been the new Pi.
But it fell short exactly where everyone else did.

It's a sore point for the open source movement. The problem with any cheap microcontroller board is it is going to use a 3d chip from major vendors who have them dirt cheap and full of IP and binary blob drivers, its a fact of life. The 3d Driver landscape sucks. It's not like we expect a chip capable of the frame rate of a $500 GPU, just functional. The PI platform has a lot of need to know crap related to that broadcom chip that is irritating enough to me that I have only bought 2 of them. I am hoping this will get popular enough to be a viable replacement for my needs. We will see. I'm not disappointed with this yet, too soon to tell. Once I order a camera for it and wifi etc we will see.
