The Onion Omega2+ IoT development boards is effectively a simple Linux computer. It is specifically designed for hardware applications – think of it as something similar in connectivity and programming flexibility to the Raspberry Pi with the power-efficiency of an Arduino. This combination of efficiency, flexibility, and connectivity makes it an ideal IoT board.
Getting started with the Omega is as simple as simple as plugging it in and powering it up! We do recommend picking up a Dock as the Omega uses a 2mm pitch header rather than the standard 2.54mm and will not work with standard breadboards. Once the Omega is inserted into the Dock you can follow the Getting Started Guide to start building your IoT device.
With the Onion you can develop using your favorite programming language. On power up, the simple operating system just starts. From there you can create programs to control IO pins host a web interface, and so much more!
On the hardware side: The Onion Omega2+ use the MT7866 SoC which is based on a 580MHz MIPS CPU. It has built in 802.11 B/G/N WiFI, and (with the addition of a small add-on board) also supports 10/100 Ethernet. Onboard the 2+ has 128MB of DDR2 RAM and 32MB of onboard flash storage. Storage can be expanded using the onboard microSD slot on the back of the board.

I just got mine before the weekend. Shipping was wicked fast! So far i am really impressed with it. The need for a dock is the only real downside – a simple breadboard pitch adapter would be a really nice addition.
