Hi everyone, my name is Andrés, I'm from Argentina. In my team we are about to start developing Linux and Android applications with Wandboard. We really like it, it's a nice board.

Hi All,

my name is Daniel, I'm an electrical engineer from Germany.
I just recently got my WandBoard Dual.

I'm pretty amazed about this little board.

I already made my first steps with getting Android and Ubuntu to run.

But finally I would like to write own applications, preferable from scratch (without Linux underneath).

I'm Chris, a computer engineering student in the US.

I work a part time research-aide position with embedded boards such as the Raspberry Pi, Cubieboard, and Beaglebone for use as in-flight computers on small RC or unmanned vehicles.

Last semester I gave away my laptop, and have been looking for a replacement. Unfortunately I didn't see anything on the market that I both liked and could afford, so it occurred to me to build my own using one of these small embedded boards. Until I started looking around for this personal project, I had never heard of Wandboards before :D But since learning about them, have settled on a WB-quad as my desired driver for this hacked together laptop.

I have a multitude of questions about the board, such as how well the wireless antenna works, which desktop environments people have successfully used under Linux, how well USB 3.0 (if that's really what the blue port there is) works, etc. Unfortunately, they mostly struck me as the kind of questions I'd just have to generate answers for, so this morning I purchased a WB-QUAD and antenna kit from FutureElec. Should hopefully be here in < three weeks.

Hi Everyone!

I'm Mark, I've got a wandboard to test for using with Multi Room Audio. Using multiple instances of squeezelite and multiple USB DACs.

I am a firmware engineer currently configuring a Wandboard Solo for a commercial application.

So far it looks like it is meeting and exceeding all the requirements we are throwing at it.
I look forward to working with it on current and future projects.

I am here for some questions (which I will post on a different thread).

Thanks for pulling together some really awesome tech and support.

Hello everyone I'm Bradley, I live in Auckland New Zealand.

I am a student who enjoys tinkering with the Raspberry Pi. I haven't ordered a Wandboard yet. I'm trying to gauge the performance gain that I will get with a Wandboard quad before I buy.

If I do get a Wandboard it would take on the roll of my struggling Raspberry Pi which hosts a WordPress blog. I was excited this morning when I discovered this 'quad' single board computer with a massive 2GB of RAM! Maybe it will be my new toy we will see!
