Dave takes a look at the Orange Pi One $10 single board 4 ARM Cortex A7 processor computer and compares it to the Raspberry Pi 2.
Coving the install of the ARMbian flavour of Debian.
Beware the security bug!
And what is the power/watt efficiency between the two?

Best Four fantastic projects for the Raspberry Pi Zero W

1. Build a Raspberry Pi Zero AirPlay Speaker

While this project formerly demands using a Raspberry Pi Zero with a WiFi dongle add-on, the Zero W efficiently does away with the necessity for this accessory. Coupled with an inexpensive 5V handy battery, it is easy to build yourself a awesome, wireless AirPlay speaker for streaming music from your Apple device.

See the whole step-by-step from Hackster. https://www.hackster.io/fvdbosch/raspberry-pi-zero-airplay-speaker-d99feb

2. Build a Raspberry Pi Zero W desk clock

With thanks to the Pi Zero W’s wireless functions, now you can build yourself a desktop clock that’s accurate to within one or two milliseconds. Once you have all the components (with a display that looks straight out of a Hollywood thriller), it is possible to hook up the clock via WiFi to the Network Time Protocol (NTP) and sleep nicely knowing you are in sync with the rest of the planet.

3. Build your own Raspberry Pi-powered R2-D2

For those who have always wanted to hack a toy R2-D2 into something a bit more sensible, the Raspberry Pi Zero W is here to oblige. Les Pounder from TechRadar has published a article for adding some wheels and attitude to the favorite droid from the “Star Wars” universe.

4. A Pi Zero W wireless security camera

One of the huge apparent benefits to owning a Raspberry Pi Zero W is being able to remain connected to the internet in places without an ethernet connection. For wireless security camera applications, this new improvement is very helpful.

Over at Raspberry Pi Spy, specific instruction manual have already been published to building up your own private Pi Zero W wireless security camera. Better yet, there already exists both a simple way to mount your camera and a professional operating-system called motionEyeOS to tie it altogether.
