I have just some questions: Am I right that the (unpopulated) TV-Pins are for Composite output like the Cinch jack on the "older" Raspberry PIs?
A hard reset, the same as on the A+/B+/2BAnd which Purpose do the 'Run'-Pins have? Do they work as Reset- or Shutdown-Pins?

If you want slow run Windows. All Linux systems on equivalent hardware are orders of magnitude faster than Windows.VisualPi wrote:Need new faster OS; All the Linux is too slow.
What is slow is all the crude that major distributions seem to include no matter what you do. Well, not no matter what you do, but the second you start using their apt-get thing or whatever, it drags in the kitchen sink. But I don't want the kitchen sink and I don't want the toilet either.DougieLawson wrote:If you're going to claim Linux is too slow you need to back that up with some empirical statistics (not

I was thinking of when I installed Ubuntu Core and then figured I'd add Firefox. Boom!Heater wrote: > What is slow is all the crude that major distributions seem to include no matter what you do.

Does it really need those libraries and other programs? How much is added to Tiny Core to add in Firefox? How much is added using apt-get?If you install program A that needs libraries X, Y, Z to work then that is what you get. No way around that is there? It's up to you what you install.
I think you'll find that things are often running, and things that you don't want to run. Why is Apache running? I didn't install Apache!This has nothing to do with speed though. Even if the default SD card image contains a window system, a desktop, and a pile of crap you don't need, mathematica, scratch etc, that does not mean it's in use at run time. It's only wasting space on your SD. Again it's up to you what you run and how much priority you give it.
Will removing something take out the system? I changed the hardware that Linux was running on and it wanted to remove the Nvidia stuff. Fine intention, but it kept blowing up about libc for some reason. Well, I could purge libc, but if I did, it claimed, there would be trouble. I bet. But, of course, I don't want to remove libc, I want to get rid of the Nvidia drives because this system doesn't have an Nvidia card in it!Don't forget, there is always "apt-get remove whateverJunkPackage"
Yes, I successfully tried that earlier:drazvan wrote:Does anyone know if the USB OTG port can be used to power the Pi Zero as well? I plan to use it in client mode (as a slave to another host device over USB) - but I want to use a single cable, power it on the same connection from the host - so do I _have_ to use the second microUSB port or can the OTG one be used for both power and data (in gadget/client mode).
