@Sanjib: Why these boards did not gain enough publicity as Raspberry Pi, Arduino?...may be because of the lack of a bigger community of users, forums?

It's hard to say why some things take off and others not-so-much -- I'm sure that the Arduino was slow-going at first.

Cheaper than TI's launchpad!

So, this one might be the cheapest development kit available in the market? I would really appreciate TI, the company which started this trend of making cute little development kits available at lower price. I still have a MSP430 kit having shape and size of a USB thumb drive which had a price tag of $20. I got that one 3/4 years back from a conference for free. The launchpad costed $5. I think, these kits are still among favourites for engineers.Why these boards did not gain enough publicity as Raspberry Pi, Arduino?...may be because of the lack of a bigger or rather a broader community of users, forums? ...and the absence of a pool of available resources, those are easily available for Arduino, Raspberry Pi?
