Thank You for getting back bensimmo. Right now I am not looking to control anything. All I want to do is to start building some beginner things from Arduino or who ever. I have been watching a You Tube that Arduino put up, it is with a guy named Mossimo also my one of my grandsons name (so how bad could this be) & it got me hooked and I want to start to build some of those Beginner projects to get familiar with this whole thing . I really know absolutely nothing about this entire platform. 1st I heard about it was 4 days ago on a model RR forum I belong to.
I am 77 yrs. old & don't really need a computer any more. I have been using a Google Chrome Laptop & it runs a Chrome OS & it is not able to handle the programming with out a lot of modification to the OS & I have done any programming ever . So I would even know where to begin to modify it & I don't want to spend $500 just for a Laptop W/ a Windows 10 Program. One of the guys on the Arduino Forum said that Raspberry Pi would serve my needs for learning about this & to start building these beginners projects.
I went to the Pi for sale page & I found it very informative but it was like looking at a foreign language instruction sheet. I could understand it but really didn't know what I needed to get started. So here I am. Can you help me?
Thanks in Advance
