Re: Android

<t>I fail to see the charm of attempting to run Android on the Pi (except to say it can be done). Android is all about device integration - of course it SUCKS as an OS. Why would you even want it on the Pi? You don't have access touch screen or camera or GPS or the magnetic, light, acceleration and ...

Re: Android

<t>It's a shame Ubuntu dropped ARM support. A lightning strike destroyed my over-clocked AMD Monster Box and I was forced to dig a P-III with 256MB ram out of the garage. Ubuntu and Fedora were too much like heavy lifting for it, so I loaded Xubuntu and was perfectly pleased with the performance. I ...

Re: Cases for the Raspberry Pi

<t>You'll be making enough units to make this an attractive solution: a simple plastic wallet with a velcro closures. A protective inner compartment that neatly closes over the board with punched-out access holes for SD card, connectors and ventilation heat bonded to an outer envelope that is slight...

Re: If you could order now..

<t>I would love to get an extra unit to give to my former boss. He comes into our bakery every few weeks. He opened up the first computer/software shop on the south side of Atlanta - Pre-IBM days. We were all barnstormers back then, creating solutions for forward-looking businesses on TRS-80's, Kayp...

Hmm... native FORTH. Makes me curious what kind of code goodies for RISC have been lurking in the shadows since the \'80\'s. =)

Re: RPi Becoming more Influential over the OS World...

<t>I don\'t think you guys at Rpi quite fully grasp what you\'re doing here. The introduction of this product may well create a major paradigm shift. We\'ve had our age of microcomputing, this is the age of picocomputing. I fully understand the the core intent is to provide a practice platform for s...
