Re: Will SSD be supported

My project is targeted for a car so a regular USB drive with a spinning disk might not be a good idea for longevity. But on a test bed that is a great suggestion as I have a USB device laying around I can use.

Re: Will SSD be supported

Quite a lot to read through. I am more concerned with getting the boot up time faster.

If the SD is needed then it can be basically a boot loader and jump off into the SSD to boot up. Seems pla...

Re: Compiling Ada for ARM

I would love to have Ada programs running on this device, using Qt! I have given up on GTK/GDK as V3 broke everything I had ever written.

Does anyone know any performance metrics on the R-Pi?
