Eoma68

Anyone got one of these? How do you like it, what do you use it for?

I like the overall idea, and would like to see/hear about them in the wild.

For more info on the idea on the EOMA68 standard can be found here

It seems like a very niche product, but not for me. As @Adubs said, the price of Pi3, but the specs are less, just seems rather peculiar to me. If someone actually has one I’d love to hear why, and how they use it, but I don’t really see the whole point of it to be honest.

I think its more ‘libre’ than the pi is but thats about it.

I agree with @Adubs and you, rather spendy for whats on offer

a freely-accessible royalty-free, unencumbered hardware standard

Seems to be the idea is making sure there is nothing “proprietary” about it

Why I wanted to see if anyone was using one, and why. Lots of FOSS ppl here, thought it would be a quick reply.

I did notice that when reading through the specs, but I don’t know, it still feels like a bit much to pay for hardware of that caliber.

It’s bespoke free range up-cycled tech. I may sell them at a farmers market here in town

In all seriousness, Pi’s have the advantage of scale and connections. I can see why it costs what it does, I’m sure at a nice profit to feed the over all work. To be truly competitive (or for a faster buy), I agree the price needs to come down

pi is cucked by broadcom, the main CPU is actually the GPU and it’s proprietary and it runs binary blob to even boot, so there’s that.
