BTW I've seen the B (without the +) on sale as low as 19 EUR - just in case anyone was on the fence about getting their Raspberry Pi...
(But along with a better energy efficiency this means you can probably skip the USB hub for many applications and that's a huge improvement imo.)
But "absolutely different"? And then putting the name of the Banana in scare quotes? That's a purist's perspective.
Judging from the comment I was replying to, it seemed that the poster was less interested in an absolute clone of the Pi, but was in fact looking for something Pi-like with more I/O power.
That assumption may have been wrong or not, who knows. I just felt like putting it out there as an option, which judging by the moderation wasn't warranted. Sorry about that.
