Delivery issues are mostly resolved, but last year some people waited more than six months for their Pi). Before Arduino and Raspberry Pi, things were more complicated. If you’re old enough to remember the wide range of personal computers that sprung up in the early years of that industry — each with a different manufacturer, each based around a different CPU — then the state of the modern microcontroller board market may seem familiar.
