Perhaps this is something for the "forks" to think about, "Linux" for example - rolls of the multi-lingual tongue with a great deal of ease and clarity
QuotePerhaps this is something for the "forks" to think about, "Linux" for example - rolls of the multi-lingual tongue with a great deal of ease and clarity Was that supposed to be sarcastic? :-) I have distinct recollections of "Lee-nux" vs "Lie-nux" discussions, culminating in an audio recording of Linus saying "My name is Linus Torvalds and I pronounce Linux, Linux". (Obviously the actual audio is a little more useful. :-) )
I have a related problem. Of course they've never heard of "Arduino." So then I say "Like a BASIC Stamp, right?" And they've never heard of those, either. So then what do I call it?Seems to me this whole activity is where imbedded processing and physical computing meet. "Micro-controller" might be technically accurate but it doesn't seem to communicate anything to the casual enquirer.So what DO I tell someone who looks at my prototype board and says "What is that?"
tell them it's like a programmable Ipod, but without music. D
