In this tutorial, you will learn how to control your BeagleBone Black using SSH with just the USB lead supplied.
The BeagleBone Black is being pitched as an American (Raspberry) Pi. It has a similar feature set, including video output. However, where as the Pi is intended as a general purpose Linux machine, the BBB (as we shall call it here) is much better equipped for connecting to external electronics, with many more GPIO pins, analog inputs and fast booting into Ångström Linux.

This lesson closely follows the ‘Getting Started’ documentation on the BeagleBone web site.
