Re: raspberry pi already failed ?

<t>andre : If someone walked into a social club I was a member of and had frequented for years, claiming our entire organisation was fundamentally flawed, I would buy him a drink and explain how I sometimes have simular thoughts, to get a discussion going. I also would assume he had done a lot of re...

Re: raspberry pi already failed ?

<t>frying_fish :<br/> <br/> I suppose this will be necessarily a long term on going investigation. My pessimism about the subject is hopefully unwarrented, however hoping for the best whilst planning for the worst may be a safe approach to the task. I would be really happy though if it was such that...

Re: raspberry pi already failed ?

<t>frying_fish:<br/> <br/> Im really thankful for your 2p on this, and I totally agree with you [almost], a highly integrated and streamlined [for RPi] linux distribution as you so excellently describe is definately something Im very interested in. Some [most] netbook linux distribution are really a...

I think a lot of the problem with this thread, is a lot of the posters arent among the golden generation, and dont have the confidence or self proved programming abilities we were lucky enough to get....

Re: raspberry pi already failed ?

<t>JamesH : I dont like your attitude, trolling and calling me a liar, please ban yourself and do the community a favour…<br/> <br/> …….<br/> <br/> A couple of people have made the point of hiding the underlying linux OS, and I agree initially as an ad hoc solution this will give our children someth...

Re: raspberry pi already failed ?

<t>toxibunny : Thanks <br/> <br/> unfortunately Im not sure when I will be able to order a RasPi yet, I registered my interest with RS a few weeks back now [due to some confusion]. Its likely that someone or some other group may have created such a system for the device before mine turns up, and if ...

Re: raspberry pi already failed ?

<t>jbeale : yes I believe a big part of the situation is to provide a simple interface as you said.<br/> <br/> However, I think we would need to provide the interfaces to the more advanced features of the RasPi from within that simpler looking interface otherwise I fear that users will get the impre...

Re: raspberry pi already failed ?

<t>Well it does not matter to me, that people have little respect for others trying to help people, and continue to pollute this thread. Because I was lucky enough to be at the right time and the right place in the golden age of computing, and so I am confident and able to do on my own what I imagin...

Re: raspberry pi already failed ?

<t>I find it amazing that not one single replier has understood the nature of my argument here.<br/> <br/> Does no one else even understand why the raspberry pi has been created ?
