No RPi so no vote

I realize the RPi is not strictly open source due to its processor but leaving it out here is just hairsplitting. It runs linux out of the box and just works. I did not vote in this poll because of its ommission.

That new Pi0 is cool (if my Pi ever dies that is what I will get) but FOSS is one thing, true freedom is another and hardware seems the toughest bound...

Am leaning* towards Arduino; something about the fact that one can make it basically from RadioShack (https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Standalone) seems right to me, however how "open" are shields?

I looks really good - it's just I can buy 5 RPis for the price of 1 minnowboard. I think the whole point/appeal of RPis is that they are so cheap for what they offer.

How cool is that?

Would have voted for NTC CHIP if it were there. That one really needs to be there.
