Re: Raspberry Pi 2 Compute Module?

the RPF simply cannot pre-announce a compute module revision 2, as their production/sales partners (element 14 & RS components) would sue them because the sales of the normal compute module would immediately stop! This is a market that prefers long term plans and buy more processor's/boards of the ...

HDMI to analog DVI/VGA conversion (+audio?)

I and others have previously suggested adding VGA to the Raspberry Pi. There may however be more cost effective to have a good HDMI -> analog converter that do not require changes in the device design. HDMI -> analog converters are however both rare and expensive. In fact they are so expensive that ...

Re: Supported programming languages on RPi

Codeblocks will probably be a good choice for rapspi. Eclipse should work to but may be a bit to heavy. However it could be an excellent choice if you use cross compilation from a x86-based compile-farm.
