The BeagleBone Black (BBB) is an awesome little micro-computer. When compared to the Arduino, it is more capable in that it run Linux and support many of the awesome software out there… that also means it’s more difficult to set up.
I found myself always going back to the sources to see how to set things up. Therefore, I figure I might just be a bit more organize and consolidate the information here. Since I have a PC, the following instructions will be for Windows, but I am pretty sure the procedures are similar.
