It's FOSS has an overview of 13 Raspberry Pi-like single board computers.

The Raspberry Pi Zero and the Raspberry Pi Zero W were added to the line up of Raspberry Pi's in the last few years. These ultra-small form-factor SBC's have been a big hit and continue to be a part of Raspberry Pi projects from the maker and DIY communities.

Due to the smaller form factor and the prices these boards are targeting, they have had to cut down on many features like a dedicated Ethernet port, slower processor (compared to their full-fledged cousins).

In an earlier article, we listed the best alternatives to Raspberry Pi. In this one, I'll list some alternatives to Raspberry Pi Zero and Zero W.

    Welcome to the botnet of things (BoT), where 'integrators' rush to market with a shady kernel fork and out of tree patches. Manufacturer goes broke and device gets pawned.

    Manufacturer goes broke and device gets pawned.

    Don't buy from a manufacturer with such poor business practices.

    Preferred:

    Manufacturer takes profit and flees to new location with new name under cover of darkness.

    This Christmas season is the most likely to see Missile Tow instead of large artillery pieces being toed.

      Manufacturer with new name sells the customer list from former name, along with instructions on how to PWN.
