Today's announcement is especially exciting to us as it involves the open source community. While we work with corporations providing them with closed source solutions, we also enjoy working with the open source community and makers. Today, we are an important part and a great supporter of the BeagleBoard.Org Foundation and its ecosystem of maker friendly products.

If you didn't know, the BeagleBoard.Org Foundation is located in Michigan and is literally only minutes away from GHI Electronics' headquarters. By being in close proximity to the BeagleBoard.Org Foundation headquarters, we're able to stay actively engaged in on-going project developments.

We have made all our engineering resources available to the BeagleBoard.Org Foundation. Through our participation in brain-storming and roadmap discussions, we've become incredibly excited about all of the awesome open source products the Foundation will be releasing.

Due to the huge demand for the BeagleBone Black, GHI Electronics will not be selling the BeagleBone Black directly via our website. However, you are able to purchase the BeagleBone Black through our distribution network including international distributors like Mouser, with whom we have had a great partnership with for many years.

If you are currently a BeagleBone Black fanatic like we are but you have a question on customizing your project please give us a call. We are here for you with our vast experience with engineering, manufacturing and bringing products to market.

Next time you are purchasing a BeagleBone Black, make sure that the board is from an official BeagleBone Black manufacturer like GHI Electronics or distributor which can be found listed at Beagleboard.org.

We are excited to be working with the Beagleboard.org team and look forward to working with the open source community as well.

Is it likely that the Beagleboard will support Windows? Or should the question be, is it likely that Windows will support Beagleboard?

@suitable1 - Without breaking NDA, we can say that is has been a topic of conversations.

@suitable1 - I don't think so. Not enough compute power. Not enough ram, and it's not 64 bit.

Ah, you guys are now going to help with the global shortage of BBBs. This is why you increased you production. Makes sense! I didn't know you two were so close. When is the big day? Whistling

I'm confused... Why would you stop selling a product that has such huge demand? Is @Gary unable to put the money in the bank fast enough?

Of course, I think it's awesome that GHI is a partner with BeagleBone.org (didn't we already know that?) but a little more detail on what exactly this means would be beneficial.

Thanks!

We stopped direct sales through the website a few years ago. We are only selling to distributors.

We are announcing that we are one of the official contract manufacturers for the Foundation as well as providing engineering resources to the Foundation. And you really need us to explain why this is beneficial?
