Is there an ARM version of DOS?

FreeDOS is in developing, I've found this http://thepiratebay.org/torren.....S-DOS.6.22 but I'm not sure if it will work.

Re: Model A+ or C?

<t>I need more usb ports and I don't know if a r-pi is capable to hold an external hard disk. But the Ethernet port is very useful and I think you don't need to throw it to get more RAM. Ethernet port is cheaper and technically simple than installing more RAM in the board.<br/> <br/> I hope the next...

Re: Low cost monitor

Some stores have used monitors (in my city I can get an LCD for 40 or 50 USD). Sadly monitors with DVI or HDMI are not very common.

Re: Is Pi able to play streaming video ?

Interesting question. I want to know it too.

But even if you can't use youtube with flash (I don't know if flash-plugin is available for ARM) you can still use other programs which open youtube videos and allows you to search on it.

Re: Simulator/Emulator for Raspberry Pi?

Thanks emercer.

I just used the emulator but it's very slow, I know the emulator tends to be slower than the physical device but it ran really slow when I used the X environment (openbox)

Re: was inspirational. now just economical. :(

<t>I understand the Raspberry Pi as a project to help the children and other people to learn computing like in the eighties with Atari\'s, Commodore 64s, Spectrums in a cheap way and it\'s something that has been lost during the Windows generation.

Re: Simulator/Emulator for Raspberry Pi?

Ok, I've installed it following the Francisco's tutorial but now I have a question:

My installation says armv5tejl. That's not the same architecture as Raspy, right? But are the applications in both architectures the same or not?

But this is not a real issue. Any TV is usable and spending 100€ you can buy a monitor with HDMI.

Re: Shipping and Handling

Amazon has restrictions for certain goods to export it. Using a global carrier may double o triple the cost of the R-PI (I'm thinking in people from South America, Africa, Asia, Oceania) and many people don't have or don't want to use a credit card.

Re: Shipping and Handling

I hope that the R-pi would be distributed through regular mail, so the shipping cost doesn't double the R-PI price, specially for those who lives far (far far!) from UK (like me).

Re: How many would you make?

Beagleboard.org say they have made, distributed and sold 200 units/week pretty consistently since launch, that works out to roughly 10k/year. Its really hard to guess, but if R.Pi ended up shifting 10x that, I wouldn't be surprised.

And the beagleboard is so expensive in relation.
