    Raspberry Pi

    I am aware that this a digression.....
    Anybody out there got a Rasperry Pi.
    I am retired and thinking of getting one to play with when the winter comes.
    The plan to get me out of the wife's way! or the management as I call her.

    Any comments or observations will be received with interest.

    Re: Raspberry Pi

    I've thought about playing with a Hackberry A10 myself... has more of everything than the Raspberry Pi. More powerful ARM Cortex-A8 CPU, Mali 400 GPU, More RAM, more Flash memory, etc.

    Thought about building a nice fancy woodwork box to place it in and use it as a sort mini HTPC... likely with an ARM build of Ubuntu, Bodhi, Debian, Arch, etc. As long as I have a music app and VLC, or XBMC, then I can play anything from a big 32GB SD card
    Don't like Unity? Hate it? Not your cup of coffee? Ubuntu does provide choices. There's GNOME Shell, KDE Plasma, Xfce, LXDE, and now MATE and Cinnamon. Take your pick

    I prefer cheesecake; it's far better looking, and tastes better

    Re: Raspberry Pi

    I've had my Raspberry Pi for 3 months; it is something that I tinker with, but I haven't yet decided on anything useful I want to do with it. If it's something you are considering, then here are some resources that may be of interest.

    http://www.raspberrypi.org/ Blogs of announcements and information about the sort of stuff people are doing with it.

    http://www.themagpi.com/ Monthly online magazine.

    http://raspberryjam.org.uk/ Local gatherings of people with a wide range of experience and abilities, some of whom don't yet have a Pi.
