Hello everyone,

I'm trying to evaluate devices for communication with Things Speak. My current application is to put a heat sensor in a room and monitor that via Think Speak remotely. I am leaning toward using a Raspberry Pi for this because, as a standalone Linux environment, I can SSH into it easily from my remote location and make adjustments as necessary. This is import because the device will be monitoring temperature over seas.

The reservation I have with this is that there are a lot more tutorials and documentation on using the Arduino and I wonder if the community has decided that the Raspberry Pi is not a good fit and that's why were is not much adoption. The other reason just might be that HTTP post from Raspberry Pi is trivia whereas it requires a little bit not setup to get the Ethernet working on the Arduino.

I realize the limitation of non-realtime IO on the Raspberry Pi but I want to make sure I'm not walking into any other traps. Does anyone know of any concerns?

Thanks a bunch,
