Every time I have to crack open the books on Intel's x86 ISA I remember why I use a NanoPi Duo (albeit with an I/O extender) as my main workstation for embedded development at home.

My home PC runs hot and isn't particularly suited to testing embedded systems (lacking native SPI, I2C, and even UART ports). The NanoPi Duo rarely exceeds 40°C, is amply fast for the compilation I do, has native pins for UART, SPI, and I2C, and has compiler listings I can read and understand without headache.
