Rasberry Pi


[link to this post]
 
Anyone have a Rasberry Pi unit yet?

I've put in for one, and when it's delivered I'm aiming to set it up as a network streamer/web player/iPlayer device powered by the USB port on my TV.

Not a Rasberry Pi, but I have Globalscale Sheevaplug set up as a Squeezebox server, and very good it is too,

Neat. I discovered last night that there is a project to port XBMC to the Raspberry Pi called Raspbmc. Coupled with one of the iPad/iPhone apps to control it, it's going to be a winner for me smile

Not good news:
The first shipment of 2,000 Raspberry Pi boards has arrived in the UK - but the company's distributors are refusing to send them to customers.

RS and CPC want to put the CE mark on them. Raspberry reckon it's not required but will have to wait for RS and CPC to get the units certified.

I think RS and CPC are right with this - a lot of these will be used as "finished products" and in long-term use so any unwanted interference could cause problems.

It's not like a true "development board" where it's just on for a few minutes here and there.

I would have though they would need to put it in a box to get a CE mark...

This delay is going to bump the price up again.

I'm also a little sceptical of peoples ambitions in terms of CPU power they are demanding.
Embedded type small form boards have been around for years.

As a poster child to get comp sci rather than IT back into the education system it has a lot of potential.

BBC Micro was the one that took off, but the Atom and stuff like Nascom II set a lot of the ground work. If in 1981 or was it 80 for the Atom in kit form that 3rd year seniors could build them from kits, why not current generation.

Times have changed. Back in the day you could buy the kit pieces or for a massive premium a made up kit. Now it would cost more to buy the separate pieces!
