Pi Review

In | by Kernel

A very well produced review of the mighty board that could, if you could just get your hands on one. Main points I took from the review: 1) you get what you pay for: daily desktop operations will be sticky with 90 sec to load GIMP and 10+ secs to get a web browser up; this'll require patience; 2) overclocking will possible, though may not really be worth it; 3) the Pi needs something lightweight, other than Debian, to run with; thankfully the Puppy Linux team is hard at work. Arch will be going into mine, if my Pi ever actually shows up.

Raspberry Pi review. We get our hands on a Raspberry Pi to see if the $35 microcomputer can ever live up to its hype.
