Re: Windows 8 to support ARM!

Although it has been said many times, even if Win8 would run on the R-Pi, it's just too slow. Why putting so many effort in something that will not work? At the time Win8 gets released MS will have multiple other devices that will have support anyway.

Re: HDMI-CEC support

Are there other ways to switch off/on your HDMI monitor (besides using the on/off button ;-) ) if CEC is not available in Linux userland? For example, when there is no HDMI signal the monitor could go to standby, so is there a way to switch of the HDMI signal?

@crashingdutchman: I understand that Ubuntu doesn't support the Rpi ARM processor (anymore), so that is why I ask. Debian still supports ARM.

Re: Remote Power ON/OFF a PC or any pluggable device via XMPP protocol

I agree, lots of people will developping on the same equipment (R-Pi), experience the same problems and hopefully as a result, share their solutions or findings too. This whole project heavily relies on the community to make it (even) a big(ger) success.

Re: Power supply for the Ra-P

Is it already known what the dimensions are of Coax-style DC Jack connector on the R-Pi board? Most power supplies seem to have 5.5mm for the outside, and 2.1mm for the inside, + on the inside.
