Did WinSCP just fry my Onion?



  • You are so wrong about the boot media. No problems at all, unlike the Omega's that fails to boot on a regular basis.

    It's an excellent way of backing up all your work. Something that is very difficult with the Omega.

    HDMI makes it a real computer, unlike the router chip that you get when you buy an Omega.

    You obviously have little or no experience with the Pi.

    You obviously haven't tried to power up your pi with only what you got for $5.

    Until you purchase and add an SD card, it can't boot, but at best complain about the lack of boot media.

    Both the omega2 and the pi zero require suitable power supplies, but the first needs only to connect that and it can be a functioning computer with wireless network connectivity, while the second still needs persistent storage added, and if you want to talk any any sort of network, a suitable adapter.



  • As I said you don't know what a Pi is.

    I said Pi is closer to a $5 computer than an Omega and I think the 11m Pi users would agree if they tried an Omega.

    You're mixing up the very distinct issues of completeness vs. software stability.

    The Onion modules are functionally complete, networked computational devices at their price point, while the pi is not - you still have to buy storage and connectivity.

    The pi does have a more mature software stack, in no small part because the hardware vendor isn't still trying to do it.



  • No I am covering what the majority of people in the world think a computer is.

    Pi wins hands down and if you don't happen to have an SD card, WiFi dongle and PSU (many people do) then the $5 Zero becomes a total cost of $10.

    The basic Omega is $5 plus recommended dock of $15 plus PSU plus an actual computer to be able to see what the router chip is doing.

    No contest



  • If by "computer" you mean something that drives an HDMI monitor, then yes, indeed, you are shopping in the wrong place!

    In comparable usage, a pi and an omega would both require a 3.3v serial terminal.
