"Yet another tiny, cheap, linux board" isn't very interesting as a crowd-funded project. It's only interesting AFTER it's in production and has demonstrated enough users, community, and vendor support that it has some hopes of continuing to exist... (to be fair, Arduino would not have been very interesting as a crowd-funded project, either. It's CREATION is pretty boring; it's its "community" that has proven fascinating. (And you can go back in time and find other very similar projects that DIDN'T succeed.))
"Looks" definition: have the appearance or give the impression of being.
I meant 'looks' as in 'it appears to function as...'. Visual appearance/layout really isn't the most important part of a microcontroller or board anyway, is it? It appears to be much more of a Raspberry Pi knock-off than an Arduino knock-off in the way it functions. That was my point. Are you trolling? Anyway....
I have gone that route in trying other Non-Arduino, Non-Raspberry controllers (Friendly ARM), and the lack of community support avoided successfully working with them.
So community (forums) is very important, and that is what Arduino and Raspberry provide.
For some stuff I use Arduino's (mostly DUEs, sometimes UNOs, and recently Lolin ESP32 with OLED as Arduino). For video processing though I go with Raspberry Pi Zero (W), they can take and process 90fps 640x480 video streams, or even 187fps 320x240 with PS3 Eye camera. In my caterpillar robot the Pi Zero will be used as video processing coprocessor for an Arduino Due controlling the robot with Arduino PID library: https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=462107
(Pi Zero with camera, and with Arduino Uno at that time)
