This is Intels bid to participate in the maker scene. I have been warned that documentation and support is sketchy, but we are going to give it a whirl. Price used to be slightly annoying at $80 or so, but when the board started being offered by Mouser for $45 I was willing to spend money for something I fully expect to be inferior to 1000 Mhz ARM boards for the same price (notably the BBB).
My board is a Gen 2 unit.
