As several people already mentioned, BR is located elsewhere than OE
on the feature/complexity curve. It is a smaller and (imho atleast)
simpler system, which is optimized for small embedded systems, rather
than PDA-style devices, but it clearly doesn't have as many
packages/features as OE.

So it all depends on your requirements, like always.
