The Raspberry Pi and Beaglebone Black include support for Python, which makes it easy to get access to a lot of low-level hardware and software stacks — USB, TCP/IP, multiple file systems etc. This is a good thing since it means you don’t need to wrap your head around all the obscure details that go along with these complex stacks or the implementation details of various serial buses: you can focus on getting your data off your sensor and into your project as quickly as possible. Hurray for abstraction!
