Rantwell give the Raspberry Pi Pico a miss Pin

- The toolchain only works under linux or macOS - no MiniGW or anything despite it requiring an old compiler
- It fails to build anything Pico at all if you install CMake 3.5 or later which VS Code requires, and which some instructions say to install the extension for
- The ARM backend they require is old AF and if you update it, it will fail to build
- The GPIO pin numbers are on the back of the board, rendering the markings useless
- The Arduino support was written either at gunpoint or while drunk. The SPI is completely non-standard, there's no SD.h support, etc

I don't know why people insist on making garbage.

This board probably works great with micropython, if you're foolhardy enough to run a scripting language with crap for memory management on something with about 256kB of RAM
To err is human. Fortune favors the monsters.
