+## Suitability for constrained devices
+
+"Constrained" means that available memory, energy, and processor cycles are so
+reduced as to become a dominant consideration in design requirements [1]. 
+
+#### Energy efficiency
+
+RIOT nodes sometimes need to last for several years without external power, so
+they need to manage energy carefully. RIOT's tickless scheduler lets devices
+sleep while they aren't active.
+
+Modules outside the core should leverage the benefits and address the
+programming challenges of such a scheduler, without demanding that users do the
+same. An idling device should conserve energy wherever possible, by default.

changed to the above, let me know if not good
