Re: Ordered something else to fill the time

I was interested in the Beaglebaord-xM or Pandaboard, but they would cost me around 250 and 300 US dollars in total (because shipping and taxes) vs slightly over 50 USD for the Pi, and I have a hard time justifying myself spending this kind of money just to play around.

Re: Cross Compilers for linux target

<r>You can use gcc in the raspberry pi board and compile natively. It will be slow, but for small build it should be OK.<br/> <br/> For larger builds, you may want to cross-compile.
