I just got my Raspberry Pi delivered 20 minutes ago after a seemingly eternal wait. I’m staring at it blankly with no idea what I should do with it. Any suggestions are welcome.
In the meantime I need to grab an SD card and a power supply so I can boot it up.
The Raspberry Pi is a very inexpensive ($35 because I bought the “high-end” one) small computer. It has an ARM processor (like your phone!) and a few ports. You provide a Linux installation in an SD card, a power supply, keyboard, mouse (optional), and a screen. I’m sure people will put together cool things for this once it’s been out for a while. For now… let’s see what I can do.
