It is unlikely more than a few will read this, but I'll write it anyway.
I began with Pong, C64, C128, Early Pentiums and have been at it ever since. I was into Dos, then Windows 3 on up. I've programmed in Basic (PC), the first few versions of Visual Basic. I've been interested in Linux based operating systems since Red Hat was new, even though I bought it I never got into it because of the learning curve and I had my Windows that could do what I wanted and needed. I've been interested in a Rpi since they first came out, but once again, never committed because of the learning curve and...
I am now looking harder at the Rpi and seriously looking to buy one even if it does become a bookend just so I can say I tried at least. I'm just trying to figure out what to use it for. My PC has LinuxMint on it (even though I'm clueless with it if it isn't GUI) along with Win 10. I have an Android tablet and phone. I have a Win 10 tablet/laptop with a phone processor (weak, but usable). I have an Echo Show and Dot. SO... Most of my bases are covered.
I am at the beginning of looking at a Rpi for a WiFi extender in my truck. I usually sit in the truck while my wife shops. I am at the edge of several hotspots around town. If I had a battery/cigarette lighter powered WiFi extender/booster/router, that would be nice.
I am also looking at making another Rpi project of making an Alexa enabled Rpi for the same truck. I've read it is doable, but I still need to research making a Rpi router that can support several connections so I could use it off of my extender/router above. This is a much lower priority because of available space in my small truck
This may be a fool's errand, but if I never try... I've played it safe most of my life and have many regrets because I never tried (I'm getting old now).
