Re: Pi for a HTTP server?

Ubuntu is not supporting R-Pi, and many already plan to use R-Pi's as mini web servers, using LAMP.

What version of Ubuntu did you use for the prototype. I have been trying to find which one so I can play around with it in Vbox. I am guessing 9.04 but I cant find the arm port.

Re: HDMI and Audio

When the HDMI is in use, does the audio connector still stream audio as I intend as part of a HTPC if possible to have HDMI for video but connect the audio to a seperate audio system with the possibility of adding a USB HDD and USB DVD drive to make up for a recently faulty DVD system.
