@webhead: I don’t know how much you know of linux computing or how deep you’ve gotten into the pi’s inner workings but if what they are saying is true about the odroid (and I have no reason to not believe them) then it really is a matter of ease. The pi is much easier to get things working on than the odroid. We all wish we had more ram and cpu power, but we will take what we can get that is worth our time and effort for a FREE project here.
Complaining will get you nowhere here. If you want the extra power you will have to put in the work. We (or at least I) hope that you will share your findings if you decide to do so.
