Wiring and Arduino , share similar design and specification since the use ATMega line components. In general besides having different micro controllers, procedures for programming are almost the same. Wiring flash memory is a bit more than Arduino meaning that programs can be longer in Wiring . There are more inputs and outputs on Wiring boards but by the same token several Arduino boards can be chained to accomplish similar tasks. Therefore it can be said that choosing one or the other is just a matter of choice, taste, need or availability. While Wiring is a fully assembled board, in Arduino you have your choice of either as a do-it-yourself kit or as an assembled board.
