(Mod: removed spam but keeping topic because there's some useful discussion.)
From Hackaday, I got the impressions that the A64's lowest tier of devices at least is less than stellar, ranging from none of the official system images working, crashes, instability, sluggishness, weaker GPU, and it being a noticeably larger device than the Pi.
I'm getting one (I'm a backer on kickstarter), and it's coming with wifi. ;D
There's one thing that the Raspberry Pi has that no other single board computer matches: community. If you have a question about a Pi, chances are that somebody has already asked it and gotten an answer, and if not there is a thriving community forum, and IRC channel

Indeed. Perhaps we could start one?

I would, but I'm busy with Job Corps, and I do not have the skills needed to create a website for this. Otherwise, I would.

Making a website is the easy part, and I'm sure a discussion board already exists. The only way to build a community is with a great deal of time.
