Re: Overclocking - Should I?

like i said you can do desktop things, just don't expect it to do everything at once without slowing down or overheating. it's up to you to push it to that point or not. every unit is different, some can overclock more than others and some just die. but by all means give it a go, it's simple enough ...

Re: equivalent of win10 Create System Image ?

i found for raspbian desktop the best thing is the "clone sdcard" in the applications menu.
of course you'll need an extra sd card, it makes a exact copy, i usually setup exactly like i want clone it and put the backup card away.
