 FWIW (as I have neither any of the current "Alternatives" or a 
 Raspberry Pi)

 Broadly speaking "Alternatives" like the Arduino and the Beagle board 
 are intended for embedded development where the Raspberry Pi is a bit 
 higher in the food chain as it comes with a Linux OS and a host of 
 peripherals with drivers.

 Though there is overlap, the alternatives are intended for a different 
 audience / application set than the Raspberry Pi.

 I do have (and have used) manufacturer supplied and 3rd party 
 development boards for a number of microprocessors. These had no (or 
 limited) peripherals. And this was approx a decade or more ago.
