Bought a raspberry pie a couple of weeks ago, finally got round to loading the raspbian wheeze operating system onto an sd card, only to discover that my keyboard and mouse are not USB! :rant: two more things to get, I'm sure I'll get to turn it on one day.

There's been some discussion on the Raspberry Pi in couple of other threads, if you haven't seen it yet.

http://forum.multitool.org/index.php/topic,43580.0.html

Do you have an end plan for it, or just playing around?

Cheers for the link, just going to play and see what I can do. I hope to use it to learn more about general computing?  I also like the ideology, and they now make them in an old Sony factory a few miles from my house. Sadly mine says made in china, but the newer models say made in WALES!

Philby, instead of buying a new keyboard and mouse, just get a PS/2 to USB adapter dongle for a couple dollars, and use the already-present input devices. :)

I've got one I primarly use as a audio streaming device in the living room.  It runs, headless connected to my home network and a set of speakers.  I control it via ssh using MOC audio player to play live on line audio streaming or downloaded podcasts.



I've used RaspBMC in the past and it plays very well.

I hook mine up occasionally for various programming projects, though I use my Arduino more and more often for the sake of convenience.

I never bought a monitor specifically for the Pi, I used either a television or computer monitor I already owned.  I bought a presentation keyboard/trackpad combo off Amazon for it so I could have a USB port free (Original B model Pi), or I SSH into it from one of my other devices.  The Pi is easiest to interact with via command line anyway; the desktop environment is so slow. 

Anyone bought a Pi 2 yet?

Looking forward to a Raspberry Pi 2.  I'm still running the older Model B.

 The new $5 model is such a neat idea. And unlike other hobbyist computers Pi Foundation has a proven record of support and a great community.

Apparently it runs Openelec Kodi (XBMC) just fine...



(painful to sit through, but it does show it actually playing video as well as navigating the interface at various points.)

That's awesome.  I can't wait to see what you do with it.  I keep thinking about getting one but then I'm not sure I would really know what to do with it when I did. 

They are awesome though.

Some of the modern operating systems that run on the ODROID-C2 are Ubuntu, Android, ARCHLinux, Debian, with thousands of free open-source software packages available. The ODROID-C2 is an ARM device -- the most advanced architecture for mobile devices and embedded 64-bit computing. The ARM processor’s small size, reduced complexity and low power consumption makes it very suitable for miniaturized devices such as wearables and embedded controllers.
