Steven announces that Orange Pi can buy a good quality WiFi component for $ 1, that its cards will have a good Wi-Fi connection for this price.
-How, if the purchase of the component is $ 1, inevitably the exit fee will be a bit higher for the end customer, Mr. Zhao? - If you tell me the price, I will know your margin … –
– No, because today all Orange Pi cards are sold at the BOM (Bills of Material) rate.
-Does this mean that the cost of engineers, premises, development equipment, design and all that … is not impacted in the price of a card?
“But how is this possible?”
-We are subsidized by the government.
And this is a breathtaking statement. Orange Pi is a private company in a state dumping system. This is what can be said from a Western point of view, from international agreements and from the whole conceptual framework designed to protect well-established industrialists.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter

I have found the orange pi to be very good, it has many OS systems including what they call a raspberry pi image, the prices are very good, plus the orange pi company has a far better attitude than the elitist and hostile attitude of the RPF, so I think in the long run orange pi will win
