Open Source Single Board Computer of the Year


A new category last year. Note that the product has to be considered open source to appear in this category.

Do you have a shortlist of the ones considered open source? Or a list of ones that are definitely not FOSS? I ask because I've tried two brands and one seems to need proprietary firmware and the other has only partial support. But of what works on them, it works well. I've looked at a few more models and brands and find a similar conundrum.

It only acts as an open platform after everything is booted (third boot stage) and running on the CPU/ARM-core (CPU and SDRAM are disabled at boot).
The main processor of the SoC is the GPU (first and second boot stage), using closed/undocumented stuff from Broadcom.

One can compare it with a closed BIOS/UEFI on PC.

Thumbs up

BPi really outperforms the otherwice excellent BBone
Has unmatched LAN and SATA performance.
And has simpler capes
Next year I hope we discuss H3 and better ones here

Apart from the Arduino, I don't think any of them are available in the UK.

I buy all my electric (or is it electronic?) hobby/make parts from either the UK or China (living in Belgium).
Which one are you looking for?

Would have liked to know why voters decided the way they did. Price, performance, support, easy access to documentation or such.

I trust it was hands on (access) and experience?

But Lemakers Banana Pi really blew me away, once I was past the politics and OEM support (or lack thereof).
Just a Jewel, next to obsolete but a Jewel none the less.
