Would you have paid extra to get an approved tested SD card with the firmware on it?

For me, getting the pi up and running is part of the fun of it.

If it had just been a case of plugging it all in that would have taken away the sense of achievement when the desktop first loaded and I surfed the web. Then the fiddling to get omxplayer to work and then play 1080p Saving Private Ryan through my Home Cinema gave me a sense of achievement :D

I think I should re-phrase the topic question.

I asked should there be a card that proves that your PI works when you take delivery of it.

I am not asking for an out of the box ready to go nothing to do product, wich I think posters all agree that they do not want either.

I can see where your coming from, however, the PI has already been tested as working in the factory.

As far as i can recall, even from day 1 the suppliers have offered SD cards, Power supplies and accessories which have been found to be compatible with the PI.

Any PI this is not working, has most likely been damaged during shipping imho.
