one question - as a beginner i am musing about the question which system to use:
i love this great community for its many users and the options to share ideas, knowledge and code.
Should i buy a Raspberry Pi or a banana Pi.
Note: the Banana Pi - Model: BPI-M2-Berry - is it compatible to the Raspi !?
Banana Pi - Model: BPI-M2-Berry: with- CPU: Allwinner V40 Quad Core 32-Bit ARM Cortex A7 with 1.2 GHz
it is told that the Banana Pi is (fully) compatibel to the Raspi 3
in other words: can i use the above mentioned Banana Pi and work with this?`
