    Pretty cool I must say.

    Thanks. It's easier than my ESP8266 Arduino work. RPI guys are top notch

    Hi Earle your work on Pico is fantastic i follow for learm many think...thx.

    So i did a side by side comparison with three picos

    One running bare bones C(compiled by cmake toolchain)
    One running MicroPython
    And one running Your Arduino package

    Here are the results of execution times + file size of final uf2's(+ main.py for micro python)

    1st place: Bare bones C, less than 1 ms, File size 64kb
    2nd place: Arduino, slightly slower(had to record in slow mode at 240 fps to even tell a difference), 452kb
    3rd place MicroPython, wayyyy slower coming in at around 500ms, 700kb

    Overall, Arduino is so much better because setting up that toolchain is a pain....

    Interesting info. FWIW, the UF2 file is about 2x the actual flash usage since it's not a real BIN image.

    Ladyada at Adafruit is using the core to demo a pre-release QT Pi RP2040, how awesome is that! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfC1msqXX0I

    If only that headshot wasn't 15 years old and I wasn't wearing a borrowed sportcoat because I forgot my own that day. :laughing:

    Hi Earle, thanks for your work! I was trying to decide if install your Core oo the Arduino one. Which are the main differences? I didn't look deeply in the code, and the first main difference seems the your version doesn't rely on mbed os.

    thanks! I was supposing the existence of such list but I didn't find it!

    Hi Earle! So I'm such its user error. I followed your guide for using arduino ide for qt py rp2040 but no matter what I do the "port" stays grayed out. Any ideas?
