+The first section discusses some of the concrete [use cases](#2-use-cases)
+which RIOT is driven by, to give a broad awareness to the developer where and
+how their features will be used. Based on this bigger picture, the [design
+philosophies](#3-design-philosophies) in the second section provide specific
+guidance for design. These include a focus on constrained devices, a short
+learning curve, and the versatility to support a huge variety of devices and
+functionality.

+# 2. Use cases
+
+RIOT is a general purpose IoT operating system for low-end devices, such as
+those described in [1]. These devices have a low memory footprint - kilobytes
+rather than megabytes - and an extremely low memory footprint of a few
+kilobytes in certain applications. As such, RIOT targets separate use cases from
+embedded Linux. Below is a comprehensive, but non-exclusive list of RIOT use
