Yup, while it was cool before, but now that USB I/O is just not
required. The little single board PCs are a far better proposition than
a retired white-box, in almost every way, unless you don't want to pay
$50 for a repeater controller.
The quad-core RPI3 and it's kin are the new easy, with so so so much I/O
on board, and it's crazy-easy to use it.
What else can we put in software on these boards? MPPT controller?
