For those of us who can't have a 3d printer yet, there's duct tape.

DPT board missing?

Not sure what the criteria are to qualify, since the Raspberry Pi 2 did not make it.

Nevertheless, here is the link: DTP board

ODROID-C1 and Pine64 look cool, thanks. Are they as "open" as the Pi?

@Jamison20000e: Yes, they are pretty much the same in openness as the Pi.. Missed that word in the topic. But you have a Banana Pi there which also use a Mali GPU.

It could get pretty technical looking through all the chips just in this poll, probably should take some out by RMS standards? I chose Arduino but once you'd start adding to it, good by GPL?

The M2 and M3 use a different GPU and are considered Open Hardware. The M1 and M1+ do use Mali400 GPU's.

@Jeremy: But the PowerVR SGX544MP2 are closed source too.. Couldn't find if the reverse-engineering was done yet. To me it still seems to be in the works. Mali400 also have a similar project to reverse-enginer it. Also... Allwinner has been accused multiple times in the past of violating the GPL license.

I was basing the board's inclusion on this information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banana_Pi

Due to the difficultly with this category, it's likely it will not be making a reappearance next year. Thanks everyone for the feedback and suggestions.

Just for reference:

https://libreplanet.org/wiki/Group:PowerVR_drivers
http://powervr.gnu.org.ve/doku.php
https://libreplanet.org/wiki/Group:PowerVR_drivers
http://limadriver.org/
http://www.fsf.org/campaigns/priorit...se-engineering

I think the category is good. Maybe if you left or are not as hard on the libre of it. Dev Boards are on the rise, almost to the extent that they can replace normal desktops. I will get an Odroid-C2 which comes in Mars (64-bit, octa 2Mhz, 2GB). Glue that to a screen and you will be able to do everything but heavy gaming. I have the Odroid-C1+ and it is fast but have a bit too little RAM for normal use.

You are missing

And the Raspberry Pi is - strangely missing.
