Re: Where can you get 'bootable' SD cards?

<t>There is no such thing as a "bootable" SD card as something special. What you need is a compatible SD card with one of the downloadable images written to it as per instructions. As far as we know most class 4 or class 6 SD cards should be compatible - avoid the newer class 10 cards as they could ...

Re: C# programs maybe?

If you are talking about exe and dll formats, then you will be referring to Intel x86 format binaries. The Rpi will require binaries in Arm format.

Re: RPi Power by USB Hub?

<t>The Y type USB cables are frequently used with 2.5" hard drives as it is not abnormal for a standard USB port to provide insufficient power. Therefore I would have thought you could have one arm of the Y (the data part) plugged into the RPi and the other arm plugged into a powered USB hub. Howeve...

Re: Recommended SD Card Size

I thought I remembered seeing posts at one time that suggested the RPi might have trouble with Class 10 SD cards! Does anyone have definitive update on this?

Re: Total Cost of Ownership

<t>I did some quick seraching on Amazon, and reckoned most of the items you mentioned could be obtained for around half the price you quoted. Using eBay might cut the cost even further.
