I fear a 32 bit Arduino path would cause a forking in the community and less contributions as a whole.


If the community grows a lot as a result of a wider range of capabilities, a fork may be okay.

If the 32 bit boards were cheaper than existing Arduino's (which appears to be feasible) then maybe AVR's would become the minority.

The major downside of ARM is the lack of dual-in-line through hole parts. If that were fixed, at reasonable cost then things would get closer. DIL ARM parts with USB included would give me a stronger reason to move. I look at those PIC's with USB in DIL packages, and wish Atmel would make some too.

it seems the majority is voting yes ... maybe it is not a bad idea after all...

Hi. Total newbie here.
I'd probably buy one if all the headers were on .1 inch centers :(
