Re: "Beginners" put off...

Thanks for the detailed feedback and suggestions striplar. There are people working on beginners' guides and resources, it's been a busy year for the Foundation and volunteers alike but things are happening in this area.

"Do you mean The MagPi? If so, I'm not quite sure how we jumped from the original post to a third party magazine." Indeed I do mean MagPi. You happen to know that this is a third party magazine, I would wager that most of the readers aren't aware of that, I certainly wasn't. We are presented with a...

I think that the table on http://elinux.org/Rpi_Low-level_peripherals is poorly laid out and misleading. I think that the 2 board versions should be separate and the pins should be in numerical order or absolute physical layout ([either 1..26] or [1..25 odd on the left and 2..26 even on the right])...

Re: "Beginners" put off...

The Magazine is a great taster, but the instructions and links are hopelessly out of date. Wouldn't it be more helpful if updated magazine issues were post edited and re-released to correct the errors? It's only natural that people will pore over these and expect to be able to get things running. T...

Re: Wish List or Christmas Stocking 2012

...Canonical have explicitly asked the Foundation to stop saying that the Pi runs Ubuntu. This really isn't the case (the use of present perfect is rather misleading ;)). The official FAQ actually says that "Ubuntu can’t commit to support Raspberry Pi at the moment." and has done for a long time. I...

Thanks poglad :). You're right, the price point is - and always has been - of utmost importance. I think (and I do not speak for the Foundation!) that the "why" of this will become even more evident when the model A comes out and also when the Raspberry Pi moves out of the "development" stage and ge...

Re: Search

It's a forum "feature". The current workaround is to search via google using the 'site:' keyword eg https://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=utf-8&q=%22keyboard+problem%22+site%3Araspberrypi.org Also, searching for, say, "repeating keypresses" finds stuff like this: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB...

Re: URL Links Not Opening In New Window/Tab

The W3C recommendation is that you don't open links in new tabs or windows, largely for accessibilty reasons. (You may wish to do so occasionally, but it should not be the default behaviour.) Accessibility aside, opening in new tabs / windows forces browser behaviour on the user and removes control ...
