Hello.
I was always interested in what is the most preferred electronics board (Arduino, RasPi...) among the people.
Let's find out!

To be honest, the only one that I've worked with, so far, is the Raspberry Pi. But I just got an Arduino to play around with. It seems that some boards may be better suited for certain applications than others.

What are you up to with it so far? Have you done any interesting projects?

Not yet. I just recently purchased it.

RaspberryPi is likely to have the most tutorials online

Yes, I agree.
What about Arduino?

I have an Arduino. It is nice and simple and does not require much. RaspberryPis are much smarter and powerful than Arduinos (I have a UNO), can easily connect to the internet and many other input/output sources such as USB, HDMI and audio. Arduinos do have all that, but it is required to purchase additional shields and addons. Arduino, in my opinion however, might be the most documented board and most common, though closely competing with RasPis. However it is hard to compare them since they are very different...

Trying to persuade you that Arduinos are good I just have persuaded myself to think that RasPis are better!:smile:

But what will happen if you make te two work together?
Hahaha! (Evil inventor laugh)!:smile:

I voted for RaspberryPi but the whole thing depends on the project at hand. There is no need to invoke a cannon to shoot a sparrow so if it is for some simple repetitive task Arduino is the way to go.

Exactly. However in this thread I mean comparisons for quite general purposes and special abilities/features of board. Also the performance and power... Eg. internet.
Do you have any of them?

No board is specifically better for internet, that's down to what software is available.
I voted for raspberry though because there is a strong software sharing community for that.

What do you mean by the software available?

Any computer hardware needs software (programming) if it is to do anything useful.
