Looks like we can play with some new Linux hardware?

In a blog post written this morning, Linux Foundation executive director Jim Zemlin praised the Raspberry Pi foundation's $35 Linux computer, which met tremendous demand when it launched this week. In his blog post, Zemlin discussed the important role that the Linux platform plays in enabling innovation around low-cost computing.

Rpi's are like gold dust Smile
Puppy was promised some early boards for development
but . . . not had any news from Eben or Liz (Rpi HQ) on that one . . . Embarassed

Nonetheless Barry has ordered a board, John Murga an early and experienced
Puppy developer has ordered one
(runs forum - currently traveling in Asia)

I have tried to order (four times so far) and GB users may have to wait longer.
You lucky dogs can be assured of delivery now new component manufacturers are involved
We are going to ARM Raspberry with Puppy ARM (PARM) as soon as we can.

The Gert board (a robot controller add on) may be used by BarryK to control his windmill.
I am planning a Cross Dimensional Communicators (mk2) as well as some more conventional ideas

The Future is Bright

Subject description: How to Build?
 

I want one.
I have an old Toshiba Satellite M35 with a busted motherboard.
Can I take the guts out if it and utilize the display and keyboard?
I could mount the Rpi in the middle and put a piece of plexiglass over the box.
Thank you for the link:

Of course you do. Smile

Your laptop project would not work because the HDMI output
would not access your laptop screen.
However I can envisage a huge 'rip out the guts and place in rechargeable batteries + Rpi'
retro laptop market emerging.
So in the future it might well be possible . . .

I've just bought a Linux magazine in the UK to read up on this. It looks like a really interesting concept - its designers in Cambridge are hoping to introduce it into schools to get the pupils programming again (as they used to in the days of the BBC Micro and Sinclair ZX Spectrum).

It is open hardware and will be cloned Cool

The foundation plans to release all the required schematics and plans to reproduce the RPi hardware, so clones and copies will be welcome.

Raffy has ordered one - many others are trying to order
- Pi estimate 2 million orders worldwide

If you register interest with RS or/and Farnell you should get a board by July.

10,000 sold already - next batch will be 100,000 I thinks Idea

Subject description: Engineers build Raspberry Pi supercomputer
 

http://phys.org/news/2012-09-raspberry-pi-supercomputer.html

Quote:
Professor Cox comments: "As soon as we were able to source sufficient Raspberry Pi computers we wanted to see if it was possible to link them together into a supercomputer. We installed and built all of the necessary software on the Pi starting from a standard Debian Wheezy system image and we have published a guide so you can build your own supercomputer.
...
The racking was built using Lego with a design developed by Simon and James, who has also been testing the Raspberry Pi by programming it using free computer programming software Python and Scratch over the summer. The machine, named "Iridis-Pi" after the University's Iridis supercomputer, runs off a single 13 Amp mains socket and uses MPI (Message Passing Interface) to communicate between nodes using Ethernet. The whole system cost under £2,500 (excluding switches) and has a total of 64 processors and 1Tb of memory (16Gb SD cards for each Raspberry Pi). Professor Cox uses the free plug-in 'Python Tools for Visual Studio' to develop code for the Raspberry Pi.


Apparently, these little Pi's are like rabbits and can multiply fast.

Did you know?

You can now order a Raspberry Pi (Model B --256 mb ram) from this NYC based business. This company specializes in making/selling a lot of hardware gadgets and devices in kit form that the customer assembles. They have a lot of hardware accessories for the R-Pi... for the hardware "junkie" --ahem-- hobbyist, it's definitely worth checking out.

Aside: This business reminds me of Heathkit during the 1960s/1970s from which I could order by catalogue --from USA --> Canada. Despite an attempt last year to resurrect the company, sadly, Heathkit is now defunct.

Pixel pitch of the R-Pi monitor is 0.15mm... not bad the ASUS Eee <2008> I'm using is 0.19 mm. Of course retina display at 9" is 1920x1200 (0.10mm).

IMHO by the time this is completed, you've reinvented the Eee.
