Re: Server Pi

After 15 as an "IT Repair and Installation" life it beggars belief what some people think is reasonable or cost effective or even should be considered perfectly feasible on a minuscule budget. That's what I mean about presuming to speak on behalf of the Foundation. It is up to them to decide what i...

Re: Working with aging school computers

Hi all It looks to me like the OP has made a useful suggestion on how to run a club on aging school PCs which could help other Code Clubs.

Re: Server Pi

I find it absurd to suggest that the Pi Foundation does not listen to feedback from Pi users and suggestions for improvements. Why would they? On the other hand there are so many off the wall wish lists popping up here, like this opening post, it's not reasonable to expect the Pi folks to enter int...

Re: Working with aging school computers

Actually x86 IS relevant. If you don't specify the architecture you are talking about the normal assumption is that you are talking about ARM based PIs.

Re: Rpi 3B+ over Asus Tinker Board

I also have a TB, and as Imperf3kt said, lack of support is what kills it. In synthetic benchmarks the TB clobbers the Pi3B(+), but in real world use that advantage isn't always realized. I've had a lot of performance and stability issues with the TB, while my Pi3 computers just work. As one exampl...

Re: 64-bit operating system

As EU stated the RPi 3A+ is the final chapter , I would be very surprised if an ARM64 Raspbian would be supported.

I do believe we will have to wait for RPi 4 for the transition....

Just my opinion..........
