Re: Arduino can't run a full blown OS

It is a horses for course thing, where a Linux machine is goof for computational tasks, and Arduino is a better choice for control application, or any other machine programmed at a bare metal level. That is why £d printers are dominantly controlled by Arduino, or Arduino derivatives,. The more sophisticated ones add a Linux machine to run networking and sling, bt hand the G-code interpretation over to an Arduino
Also, and Arduino is cheaper for simple control projects, even when a some form of networking Interface is thrown in. Further, the Arduino is easier to program for simple tasks, as you do not have to deal with the complexities od a multi-user operating system.

Re: Re: Arduino can't run a full blown OS

Yes, that is true. A Pi to run higher level powerful abstractions. Micro controllers like Arduino to manipulate the physical world. Connect them all together with I2C or other means.

But on the other hand . . .

In 2030, if you want to blink an LED, it will take terabytes of code, including an Arduino emulator in interpreted python on Linux in another emulator. It will be the only option on the market for blinking an LED. But hey, it will be in a SOT-23 package, draw nanoamps, and cost five cents.
