We should start a petition against the half pin spacing. I've just seen a tutorial somewhere on how to make your own arduino shield.. starting with drillingin-between holes on perf-board :-?
Not to steal the thread, but is this really something people would like?
I put it on the Bugs+Suggestions voting page on the playground, but am afraid that it will get lost there.http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Main/SuggestionsBugs
Not to steal the thread, but is this really something people would like? A Diecimila clone with the second digital header on 0.100" centers? Seems to me like this should be an easy enough modification to any of the Freeduino clones. If, lets say, 8 people PM me and express their interest, I'll make one.
Fortunately most freeduino variants i know are breadboard versions. No chance for whatever odd spacings there. I don't think the problem is creating a 0.1'' freeduino alternative. The official boards still are and should be the standard in my opinion. now, if i were to produce or release the files for a shield design i'd have to decide whether i want to make it "arduino compatible" or not by making it DIY-friendly.
