Hey. I would like to know if anyones here have got some experience with grblHAL or linuxCNC for controlling the CNC machine. I would like to know what are the differences and simmilarities between the two from experience?

I would like to mainly understand whether the additional hardware for grblHAL have any clear advantage over just using linuxCNC?

From what I understand, linuxCNC only requires a Raspberry PI
wheareas grblHAL requires a Raspberry PI running GRBL program and additional 8 bit (grbl) or 32bit (grblHAL) microcontroller to do all the controls.
