Why look at Alternatives
These Raspberry Pi comparisons look at some of the other microcomputer boards that are currently on the market and compares them to the Pi.
These comparisons are great if you’re trying to decide on a board to get started on. You will be surprised how different some of them are ranging from a few small changes to some pretty big ones. These guides will touch on almost everything you need to know about these cool affordable micro-computers.
You find that some boards such as the Arduino actually can work with the Pi enabling you to make some pretty amazing stuff. I will have some projects coming in the future that makes both use of both the Pi and the Arduino.
If you have read a Raspberry Pi comparison and decided on a device to go with but now looking for something to do, then be sure to check some of my cool Raspberry Pi projects. These projects, while they were tested and designed for the Pi, should still work on most other microcomputer boards running a Linux distribution.
You will find that the Arduino is probably the most different out of all comparisons when you compare it to the Pi. The Arduino lacks a fully-fledged operating system making it a lot faster when dealing with hardware. If you’re after Arduino projects, then be sure to check out my other site Arduino My Life Up.
The Pi has a lot of accessories that you’re able to buy for it such as cases, kits and much more. If you end up getting a Raspberry Pi, then you might want to check out some of the Pi accessories you can get for it.
Much like all of my projects and Raspberry Pi guides that you find on this website, can also be done on other microcomputer boards running a Linux distribution. These cover things such as port forwarding, mounting a USB drive, setting up MYSQL and PhpMyAdmin and much more. You might have to change some of the commands to work correctly on your Linux distro.
If you decide on buying a Pi, then you should check our guides on getting started with the Raspberry Pi. These guides will take you through all the basics that you should probably know. This section includes things such installing the operating system, how the GPIO pins work and much more.

I hope that you find these Raspberry Pi comparisons helpful when it comes to deciding the board you would like to develop/learn on.
