Those have quite different purposes. As a good allround "computer", I'd take the newest Raspberry Pi for the moment. Its available operating systems are mouth-watering.

Olinuxino because it at least tries to be open source software/hardware,
while Pi creators don't care about freedom and going with crappy Broadcom
(crappy not in terms of performance, but in terms of freedom respecting)
and doing it because of money and they are former Broadcom employees so biased

I have an Orange Pi PC2, which I originally planned to hook up to a TV and play movies on. Turns out, there's not really a good GPU driver available, so everything lags. It still works for me as a cheap file server, though.
