    Hello sir,
    I want to know about Udoo x86!
    Which languages can we work upon in it (c++,python, eclipse, sketch or so), its compatibility with programmes written for other SCBs & microcontrollers (Arduino Uno, Arduino 101, and Raspberry Pi 3 as said for UDOO_Neo=arduino_101 + raspberry_pi)!!! Can we compile a programme to it using a different laptop (in case a monitor is unavailable)!??? What are the precautions for prolonging the lifetime of the board and to avoid its damage?? Please reply!! Thanks in advanced☺☺☺☺

    The Udoo X86 is a PC based on an X86 CPU. On the same board there is a Arduino 101. The 2 talk together with a fixed USB connection.

    On the PC side you can use any programming language you can use on any other PC. You can use any Operating system that supports X86 architecture. (Windows, Linux). You can use any program like on a normal PC.
    For your information, a Raspberry Pi is ARM architecture so programs written for a Raspberry Pi will not work.

    The Arduino 101 is supported by the Arduino community. As it is a new architecture and different from the for example an Arduino Uno a lot of programs will work.

    So whatever you can do with a normal PC (remote access) you can do with the Udoo X86.
    Precautions for lifetime: keep the board cool, well powered within voltage range and protected against the environment.

    For your info, a program written for a specific board will never work on another board by default i.e. without any tweaks. It's the same as asking "does this PS4 videogame work on Nintendo Switch?"
    Also, boards are usually general purpose devices, and you can use them to write any program. They're basically computers with a particular architecture.
