But while there are many different Arduino clones, several of them use the
same programming interface. I guess what I am getting at is why reinvent the
wheel. I wasn't thinking so much about the components used, but the
programming (software) side of things. Having one common interface would
allow for anyone to use any system, and yet, only having to learn one
programming environment. I really do understand about the options of
hardware, but with all this code out there already that is FREE and FREELY
downloadable ANYWHERE, it only makes sense to not force new users or your
hardware modules, who might already know the programming interface of
Arduino, to have to learn another system.

Peace may sound simple—one beautiful word— but it requires everything we
have, every quality, every strength, every dream, every high ideal.
