Hi everybody,

what do you think of this new toy?

I must admit their communication is a bit "ambigious",
especially when they're talking about the Raspberry Pi compatibility..

if it's about pinout compatibility, I would say great.
but on some of their sentences/phrases, we could almost think
you could run the same "images" (sdcard) or binaries...
from the Raspberry Pi on their "Banana Pi"....

They're saying they support Debian, Ubuntu, Android (4.4) but they don't
give URL where to find all of these distros..
