Just ordered a Raspberry Pi 4 kit for Christmas. Plus a Zif to M2 board and battery for an old Aspire One netbook.
Have interest in tiny computers as well as tiny trucks!

Anyone else played with a Pi?

Me! Me!

I love the Pi. I don't have a M4 yet, but have played with the 3 and 3b models.

I prefer the Arduino to use with certain projects, like I'm building a monitored watering system for plants, and a fan speed controller for a PC. I like it because you can just flick it off, and it won't corrupt.

A pi though is a real computer with a real operating system, so you need to shut it down controlled, or it corrupts. But it has so much more processing capability than the Arduino. I've played around with some vision and night cameras, as well as some displays and a servo motor controller for the Pi. My favourite Linux distribution (Fedora) also has a Pi Specific version, so that makes integration and coding easier.

I've got a Pi on my network running Pi-hole until I get around to configuring my opnsense instance.
