- Why did you choose the raspi instead of an intel based computer?
- Would you recommand it?
What makes you think it's a "maker toy". It's a small board Linux (or Win10IoT) computer which has lots of interfaces that are useful for industrial and commercial applications.georgsimonohm wrote:Thank you very much for your replies <3 I don't want anyone to loose their job!
My intention is to show that the raspberry pi is enterprise ready and not just a "maker toy". I'll also search the blog for interesting projects.
Obviously...such a site does not, and--likely--can not exist. See the post early in this thread by Liz. *She* knows about a lot of embedded uses, but is not at liberty to disclose them.georgsimonohm wrote:Thank you all for you responses! Since i opened this thread i did a lot of research about different projects build with the pi. Now i was wondering if there is a official site where all known projects are listed? I think this would be a greate feature. And of course when i'm done with my research i would like to share my results with this great community
Liz, would there be any chance of putting a page somewhere that simply lists some aggregate statistics of what has been sold into various industries without naming names or describing specific applications? (rounded to nearest 10/100k and lumping companies together.) E.g. "20,000 Pi's have been sold to half a dozen companies in the transportation industry and 100,000 Pi's have been sold to two dozen companies in the consumer electronics industry", etc. Or would even that be too much disclosure for them?liz wrote:OP - I'm Director of Communications here at Raspberry Pi, and we would *love* to be able to publicise more examples of enterprise usage. Unfortunately the vast, vast majority of organisations using Raspberry Pi do not want to make the fact common knowledge for a variety of reasons, competitive advantage being the main one.
