)-- LinuxGizmos.com and Linux.com have launched their third annual survey of sub-$200, hacker-friendly single board computers (SBCs) that run Linux or Android, supported by a comprehensive catalog of 98 SBCs, along with a google docs spreadsheet comparing all the boards. Participants in the survey can win one of 27 prizes from a random drawing.
"Pick your favorites from our catalog of 98, sub-$200, hacker-friendly single board computers that run Linux or Android, and you could win one of 27 prizes," stated Rick Lehrbaum, LinuxGizmos.com Founder and Editor in Chief.
A collaboration between LinuxGizmos.com, a website of the DeviceGuru Blog Network, and Linux.com, the community site of the Linux Foundation, this third annual reader survey of open-source, Linux- or Android-ready single board computers priced under $200, invites makers, hackers, and professional developers to rate 98 single board computers in a brief, 3-minute survey hosted at SurveyMonkey.com.
The survey involves choosing three favorites from a list of 98 SBCs, and answering several questions on key buying criteria and intended applications. "By completing the survey, particiants will earn a chance to be among 27 randomly selected winners who will receive free SBCs generously donated to the survey by Aaeon, Arduino, BeagleBoard.org, Gumstix, Intel, and Qualcomm," said Lehrbaum. To aid in rating the SBCs, LinuxGizmos.com has published a catalog with summary features and specifications of the survey's 98 SBCs, along with a detailed quick-reference spreadsheet that compares key features of all the boards.
"This year's survey's prizes include the Arduino Uno WiFi, several BeagleBoard.org BeagleBone’s including the new BeagleBone Blue, Arrow’s Qualcomm-backed DragonBoard 410c, the Gumstix Pepper DVI-D, ADI’s Intel-backed MinnowBoard Turbot Quad-core, and several Aaeon UP board models including the new UP Squared, as well as one of the first UP Core boards, which has just launched on Kickstarter," said Lehrbaum.
