Hardly a day went by posting and boasting about the HummingBoard over Raspberry Pi, seems we missed out the new and more powerful beast ODROID that was brought to our attention by our friend Cynder Blackenfield, who also happens to be a Linux enthusiast and is coming up with more amazing stuff on his new blog superusefullinuxblog
