Re: VGA Monitor and Wi-Fi with the Raspberry Pi

Some good suggestions - you can also use vnc/remote desktop and view the pi's "screen" on your own monitor whilst still using it for other things - basically the pi screen will show up as its own window in windows

Re: RS - not strictly correct description ... ?

I think the op meant to say that saying it runs Fedora when the Fedora Remix version is unstable isn't the best idea as people may end up having trouble when running it.

But yes the issue about calling it Fedora Remix rather than Fedora needs to be addressed too.

Re: What actually is the Raspberry Pi?

An excellent question Joe and some very nice and detailed answers which have covered all the main points.

I think the real innovation will come from the people who use the raspi and create interesting and innovative projects and code with it.
