'With the Raspberry Pi, Arduino Due, and BeagleBone, the world is full
of cheap, tiny computers that can be used by creative developers in
everything from robots to space flight.

One thing these platforms have in common is an ARM processor. Now they
have some competition from Intel with its "MinnowBoard," a $199
computer in the form of a 4.2" x 4.2" board with an Intel Atom
processor.

[...]

It's notable that the MinnowBoard is an open hardware platform, a
distinction that Arduino and BeagleBone can claim but Raspberry Pi
cannot. Users could create their own MinnowBoards by buying the items
on the bill of materials [...].'
