Re: How would you use a Raspberry Pi device?

projects that require some real application processing that are just too big for 8-bit and low-level programming.

Re: What have we missed?

I think gigabit ethernet's a good one, as it wont increase board size but 100mbit just doesn't cut it these days. USB 3.0 would be nice, one port is fine, I'll use a hub =P SATA for all variety of hard dists inc SSD for sure!

Sorry, I'm writing under the assumption that the ultimate goal for RaspberryPi is to bring programming into the core curriculum (ie assumption of more involvement beyond just clubs etc).

Re: Simulator/Emulator for Raspberry Pi?

Hey guys,

Any idea how to change the resolution on the QEMU windows running Debian package? I'm getting 640x480 which is too small to work with. Also I see my CPU is only being used upto 16%, is there anyway to artificially increase speed of the emulation?

Cheers
