Re: Meego development video

It would be fantastic to have Meego on Raspberry Pi :D
Also, Qt Quick is great to teach how to make a gui, and to develop simple and nice interfaces for kids :)

Re: Will the Raspberry Pi run Java?

It could be nice, with hardware acceleration (like ARM Jazelle), but Java programs sometimes doesn't work so well as you could think. Yesterday Linus Torvalds just said: "I'm tired of java programs that don't work" :D

Re: Low cost monitor

"A second USB connection is included for systems that do not meet power requirements." Sure that it can be powered by a R-Pi?

Re: Low cost monitor

There are many monitor like that on internet, I think that is not very useful. A list with easy-to-use/cool addons for the Raspberry could be interesting: for example, I would like to see (and buy) a little touchscreen monitor powered by usb :D

Sure! I don't know if I write here some shops links... Try looking for "solar usb battery" or "phone solar usb charger" on Google.

Re: USB Device port on R-Pi / BCM2835

If the Raspberry goes with 6-20 V, how could be possible that the BCM2835 could use an usb port as host, if usb power is 5 V? I'm a bit confused, and I would really like to power the RaspberryPi pc using the usb port :)

Re: USB - Device or Host?

Power over usb would be perfect (and eventually ethernet) would be cool. Also, there are many cheap (~15€) solar usb panels with battery built-in that could be easily connected to RasberryPi device.

Re: Power supply

I found some solar panel (33 g / 5.5 V / max 180 mA / 15.5% efficiency) for 5,5 €. Would be cool take four of those, connect them with a battery with Raspberry Pi. With a little usb keyboard it could be easily used as mp3 player :D

Re: Request: Source for the GL drivers

<t>It would be great to have a free driver. I don't believe that closing the driver is a good way to protect technology: both Intel and AMD provides official opensource driver, and for Nvidia cards there's a community project called nouveau, which has 2d and 3d acceleration. It's sad that Linux actu...

Re: Want to learn Python?

PyQt still exists too. Nokia and OpenBossa have developed PySide from scratch due to license problem (PyQt is not LGPL as Qt, see http://www.riverbankcomputing......qt/license ).

Re: Raspberry pc + eink display

Happy to read your reply! I'm already dreaming a Raspberry device with eink on the front and solar cells on the other side, with a take-one-give-one buy option :) Good luck!

Re: Raspberry pc + eink display

It would be interesting to use Raspberry pc with an touchscreen eink (no power needed if you don't refresh your display, good readability). Don't you think so?

Thanks for your beautiful project ;)

The trouble with Python though, how can you get a GUI type environment like in flash or visual basic?

Personally I suggest Qt Python binding: http://www.pyside.org/
