    This Beagleboardxm uses a special version of Linux or Android as an operating system. You would load that onto the SD card which is what it boots from. You can get this board for considerably less that here at most any other electronics store online. Mouser and Digikey have it for 100 less. Want to experiment? Consider trying out a Raspberry Pi instead. At 35 dollars its a win-win situation for those just wanting to experiment. The ONE STAR rating is not for the board itself, but for the pricing. You can pay 299 for this or get a Raspberry Pi for 35 and get basically the same thing. Why pay so much?
