Who has one? What do you think of it? What have you done with it so far? What do you plan to do?
Mine arrived a week or so ago. Looks fine - works well but pretty slow on Linux although much better on RISC OS. I've had it running Linux (Raspian) through the TV but I can't get my head round Linux at all - hateful thing. And to think that I have cursed Microsoft!
Planning to use it in school with a small group of kids encourage programming and understanding of the hardware. Also to see if my Y10/11 pupils will be able to find the time to develop add-on PCBs to use in conjunction with their Systems & Control GCSE projects as opposed to the current use of PICs. All this is however at risk because for the sake of economy the Raspberry Pi foundation chose not to include VGA output and we (like most other schools I think) have so many VGA monitors. A really shortsighted decision if they really want to make the Pi platform accessible at low cost. So I have to find say another £100 for each monitor when another chip on the Pi PCB might have increased the cost by say a couple of quid.
Currently looking to buy a monitor for use at home with HDMI, DVI and VGA input to use with my PC and the Pi. Thinking a used Dell U2410 might fit the bill.
