I expect there will be 3 types of Pi-Pico users (and thus Questions).
- The first will be Pi users who also want to use/program Pi-Pico from the Pi.
- There will be a group who just want to use as a microcontroller, similar to Arduino.
- There will also be those who want to use Pi & Pi-Pico for a project. (I look forward to some projects using the Pi-Pico as an enhanced GPIO extender.)
There are already Questions from the first 2 groups.
Strictly use as a microcontroller would seem to be off-topic, but it is inevitable that they will be asked, and this Forum should be able to handle these questions.
I expect the Arduino forum https://arduino.stackexchange.com will also get its share of questions and the Arduino app will get RP2040 support, but this hasn't happened yet.
It would be great if we could proactively subdivide questions into different categories.
Ask Different has Mac, iPod, iPhone & iPad questions interspersed, which makes most of the site irrelevant to some users.
