    The beaglebone is for sure not for desktop use. But is perfekt for robotics, cnc, 3d printer and other project where you need realtime control. That's where the two PRU's come to life and shine.
    See http://blog.machinekit.io/p/hardware-capes.html for a long list of capes for cnc/3D print control.

    This is a cheap ARMv7 embedded development board. I suppose I would have been disappointed too if I were going into it looking for a mini PC.

    The reason you have so many single core boards despite them being slower, is that hard real-time multi-core scheduling is pretty tough and rarely useful. There are just not too many ways around the serial execution of: Take sensor input -> Filter -> Compute -> Output to storage \ display.

    More so, An extra core that is hardly ever used is a power-drain for people that are interested in running off a battery.

    Still, regardless of reasoning, it leads to the same conclusion: Buy a different board if you're looking into running something more Desktop'y.

    GPIO

    The Beaglebone black has ~65 GPIO pins, which makes it very interesting. You can use it to control anything you want. There's an easy javascript library to control the pins from within the browser.

    Speed is not the goal of this board.

    Well, at least it's ARMv7. That ARMv6 on the Pi is getting pretty long in the tooth...

    BBB

    BBB tries maintain both prespectives like electronic kits(Arduino...) and embedded development (UDOO, inte baytrail kit, Raspberry Pi)

    A10-OLinuXino-LIME is a nice alternative too.

    Oh, and it is full OSHW.
