The Beaglebone Green

I actually prefer the BBG in almost every way to the BBB. The huge advantage is getting rid of the HDMI video, which frees up GPIO pins. Getting rid of the HDMI also saves money (about $16). And it just feels good to get rid of something that is entirely ridiculous in an embedded project. The only thing missing on the BBG is the DC power connector. They also changed from a mini-USB to a micro-USB, which honestly is neither here nor there to me.

Feedback? Questions? Drop me a line!
