Good for you. As you didn't work where I did, I have NO interest in your opinion.
Not an opinion, a fact. One not fabricated from thin air.

Re: Has anyone done a comparison of the Pi and the Intel Edi

The side track was about "REAL assembler" and we all know that the ONE TRUE ASSEMBLER is S/360, S/370, S/390 and zSeries and we should all worship Gene Amdahl who designed that architecture and very neatly got it perfect. Not wanting to divert the thread away, but a site I worked that migrated from...

Read the thread again, again. At no point have I seen the OP discuss the topic you want to talk about (it's quite rude to divert another thread to what you want to discuss). To remind you this is about the Intel Edison vs Pi. The side track was about "REAL assembler" and we all know that the ONE TR...

It became relevant, read the thread again. No it hasn't, since when did running S\370 code apply to the Intel Edison?

Re: Has anyone done a comparison of the Pi and the Intel Edi

I've been developing system software in s/370, s/390 (and some x86/68xxx) assembler since the early 70's (recently retired :)). ARM is on a par with any of the above, IMNSHO. I *really* like the similarities of the s/370 and ARM assembler syntax. Have you tried running Hercules with MVS 3.8, JES an...

Re: 6 Raspberry Pi Model B+ vs 1 raspberry Pi 2 model B

Your last question is well beyond the scope of this forum (apologies to the moderators if I'm out of line here).

It will take a lot of research and study, by you, to competently grasp the complex relationships between software and hardware designs and how they affect system capacity and performance.

OK. Yes, it will automatically connect, iff your router and Linux networking configs are correct.

Re: Looking for some suggestions

I'd start by looking at Python for software development (and in particular the 'serial' library ("import serial")). There is a UART on the Pi, and there's lots of info about how to use it on these boards. Here's an external link: http://elinux.org/RPi_Serial_Connection Sounds like a fun project, let...

To get around a that issue here, in my firewall settings, I forward external port 8022 to internal port 22
So I set up Putty to knock on 8022.
