I’ve just ordered my Raspberry Pi!
A waiting list has been open for a couple of months and I guess it’s my turn. It will be here in about 6 weeks.
If you don’t know about the Raspberry Pi project, the goal is to make a 64-bit ARM GNU/Linux computer for under $25. The current model is about the size of a credit card and it costs $35. Not bad.
I’ve heard talk of using one of these to drive a CNC machine. I’m not sure I’ll be doing that. I’m not sure what I’ll do with it at all, actually. Maybe a server. Maybe a pirate box. Maybe just a desktop PC. I’ve got 6 weeks to think about it in any case.
