Re: "stable" not officially supported?

When Bullseye launches, it will be announced on our blog as well as all sorts of social media. Should be fairly unmissable.

Re: Pico - EU - USB-C

Please note that I only asked if there will be a switch to USB-C, which the answer is no. I'll just wait until a Pico-compatible (with the same pinout) board comes out with USB-C instead of uUSB, which is up to 50% more expensive than the original. Or until I really absolutely unconditionally need ...

Re: Help With GPU Memory

Keep it as LOW as possible to get best performance. Going above 150 or so will just waste memory that could be used by the ARM's. Depending on your use case, you can go as low as 32MB, but on the whole, just use the default (i.e. no specific entry in config.txt)

You mean like what was done on the Pi4B? Exactly. I bet there will be a switch to USB-C at some point. Until then, I'll stick with AVR controllers as they are good enough for me so far and there are cheap clones with USB-C. I understand very well that I may be a completely insignificant part of the...

Raspberry Pi Trading, not Foundation. USB-C connectors are currently a bit more expensive. If they drop to the same or less than uUSB, then for our much lower cost products (Pico, Zero), it might be an option. If this is not a trade secret, how much more expensive would Pico/Zero be for each uUSB r...

Re: pcmanfm spewing gigabytes of errors to run.log

In the old days folks didn't act entitled I paid money for the Pi and it's manufactured for a profit, so I would expect some amount of testing to identify bugs just like this. Maybe you don't like the idea that profit comes with responsibilities, but that would speak more to your personal work ethi...

Re: Object colour detecting and finding matching colour from catalog

Not sure you need the LDR. You have a camera that is perfectly suitable for reading the light levels. One major thing to consider is calibration. You should have some "test cards" with known colors on them to calibrate the camera/sensor against. I used to work in a photo lab and we had to...
