Looks like you a right. To many things with name almost the same.
There are Arduinos with built-in Ethernet shields. That is what I
meant. My plan is to "borrow" some code from the NTP Palisades
driver and first build a Thuderbolt library for Arduino
I'd be concerned that anything related to ".net" would forever tie you
to Microsoft. But in both cases the big things are that you don't
need to build a PCB or distribute programmed chips and using Ethernet
means you can see it from a web browser using a computer or phone
Is the development system for netduino cross platform?
