You can do alot with one without knowing much or any programming. I usually use mine to watch videos off my media server, but now and then I run some emulation and play some classic games. On rare occasions I will tool around linux and try some of the user projects on here for the hell of it, one of these days when I have time I may start a project of my own with one but I wouldn't count on it. If none of that appeals to you though don't buy one just cause it's the cool (+ nerd weiner size) thing to have.

Hi,

with the Raspberry Pi you try to solve problems that you would not have without her. Many husbands will be reminded of someone. :D

Best Regards

There is only one.

(Wait... hehe,nm)

A more appropriate question would be Where to buy one?

..and that, I'm afraid, depends almost entirely on your location and your sense of adventure.

Noob is not derogatory the noob is just the lower end of the noob--geek spectrum being a noob is just your first step towards being an uber-geek ;)

If you find a solution please post it in the wiki the forum dies too quick
