Re: Why SSH?

SSH is secure. If you want to do FTP type things over SSH you can use SFTP. (it's the same service)

A Windows SFTP client is WinSCP (http://winscp.net, settings: port 22, protocol SFTP)

Re: Pronounce Linux

You can say it however you want-- one of the beauties of Linux.
There's only one way to say Windows however, and only two ways to say Mac OS X.

Just one of the numerous benefits you get when you go against the man.

We're going to be releasing a camera board, which will deal with composite input. My hope is that we'll be ready to go before Christmas - but you know how these things work, so it's perfectly possible that we won't be ready before February-ish. We're doing our best, though!

Re: Screen becomes blurry after plugging hard drive

I would definitely try grounding your Pi, since the Pi has no other ground besides an HDMI monitor, which you don't have.

Re: Raspberry Pi 256mb vs 512mb

Certainly the 512MB model!

Twice the memory, so it will be a bit peppier. Costs the same, ships in the same amount of time if you buy from the official suppliers.

If you wish to install the OS directly on the SD card, it must be generally 2GB or more (but 2GB fills up fast). If you wi...

tty is a separate instance and is a raw terminal, but generally Ctrl-Alt-T in Ubuntu opens a terminal emulator within the X server (the GUI, that is)

We definitely support 1920x1440 (4:3), 2560x1600 (16:10), and 2048x1152 (16:9). Not sure about 2560x1440 though.

Re: What system format for my DS card?

You don't format it to anything; when you write the image it will make the partitions in the correct format.

If you're interested in knowing anyway, I believe the boot partition can be either FAT16 or FAT32 (not 100% sure though) and generally the Linux partition is in ext4.
