Welcome to Raspberry Pi, a single-board micro computer's forum.

maybe we might want to name this forum something else ? I see "Banana Pi", "OrangePi", "PineA64" ....

I thought we already had a forum for the Pi.

But I concur, we can probably accomodate other SBCs (single-board computers) and AVR devices like the Arduino, ESP and similar platforms.

Speaking of which, have you heard that someone's got an ESP8266 emulating an IBM PC XT now?

Not bad for a device that was originally intended to be a peripheral to the Arduino, can be purchased for under $2, measures about 1/2-inches x 1 -inc (15 x 25 mm), and implements the most popular features of the tcp/ip 802.11 WiFi stack, including secure transport and can act as a web server for up to 4 (10?) concurrent clients!

Well, we never had Pi forum, only Arduino. As you all see the category reads as Micro Controllers, but only the Arduino is as such, while others as Tim hinted are single-board computer machines. So might there is space for a category name improvement. Note, this cateogry also contains BeagleBone.

However, I trust there are many other SBCs, I'm just not sure if to create forum for everyone which goes in and out of the game. These seemed to me long live and most trusted by the industry. I could be slightly wrong though.

But since we are all part of the community, if we think we need more specific or generic forums - things are mendable.

Once I free up myself within the next few months from other activities, I'll get out my rusty Raspberry Pi with old IBM keyboard (about 5 Kg weight) and will work on some personal project.

This is what I find to be my problem, finding the time to work on or with these. I have a Raspberry Pi II (or B) which is collecting dust while I learn and work on other projects and technologies.

I'm actually in the opposite boat. At the moment, I'm working more with Pi and Arduino than with Java. I've got a Pi Zero W with a camera watching my front door, a Pi with a high-fidelity audio card by my keyboard (I'm measuring it to design a custom enclosure), another Pi with a touchscreen LED display on the other side of the keyboard and 2 different WiFi adapters for an Arduino project I'm doing.
