With such cheap clones on eBay, how popular are the official boards?

I had a RBBB, but it started to get worn out and I goofed it up so I made my own

If I was going for a shield compatible model, I would go for one of the name brand ones instead of brand X ebay china model depending on the features I wanted / needed

At the moment I have a number of genuine boards.  But that s more by virtue of the fact that I was after the newer board (Uno and Mega), and at the time I was buying equivalent clones were not available.

I've got one arduino, two DFRduinos and a build-your-own on a breadboard thing.

I have one arduino to use for proto-typing and then a bunch of breadboard or build your own for permanent installations.  THe official arduionos are a lot easier to work with but I cannot see leaving it dedicated to a single project for very long.

I avoid the exact ("pirate") clones, but have a bunch of BBB, boarduino, Freeduino ("value added clones"), and homemade boards.

I have no EBay clones (thats somethign different in my opinion). I just use a PICO 328 and a Seeeduino Mega.
Why?
The PICO was one of it's kind back then (Small form factor 328, way before an official one that way) and i just like the seeeduinos more due to their breadboard and prototype board compatibility, mini usb and auto-reset features.

Believe me, Mike, I calculated the odds of this succeeding against the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid[ch8230] and I went ahead

So how do you count a DIY "Severino" based on documentation on the Arduino site?

I would have more official Arduinos than clones (mainly Pro Mini) if it wasn't for the board I've designed myself -- because not even a pro mini fits in a hula hoop!
