I'm trying to work a RaspberryPi target into FreedomMaker. Also, the
OLinuXino A13 looks nice. I personally prefer the A13 over similar
devices (over the BeagleBone Black and even the RPi) because it's a
fully open and free design, in the strong senses of the word. The fact
that FM has to load ~60 M of sourceless firmware + kernel  to boot
the RPi just rubs me the wrong way. Of course, I could be wrong about
all this, maybe I'm overestimating the package size, and maybe it's not
required to boot: I'm still in the research stage, not the execution
stage at this point. We'll know the limitations when it's finished.
