I hope these RISC-V boards continue to get more popular.

With Nvidia likely to complete its ARM acquisition, I do not want an ARM future. Linus was correct about Nvidia. Nvidia is good where they are good, but they need to stay in their lane and stay out of our way.

If RISC was meant as a teaching tool, I'm surprised that they didn't take a page out of the Raspberry Pi and do this earlier.

RISC-V was developed as an Open Source ISA, so that computer engineering students could design and build processors without worrying about infringing intellectual property.

It's only within the last couple of years that CPU designs have been powerful enough to run lightweight versions of Linux... and only more recently still that we've seen desktop environments and apps running on RISC-V.

More powerful chips are coming though, and we will see RISC-V take on more major roles in consumer electronics, going forward.
