Re: Shouldn't we just give the foundation a break now?

I intended to buy a laptop for my son and teach him for programming, but I read here about RPi -> "… to get kids into programming".

Why should I choose PRi, but not some common laptop or PC?

Re: I'll probably decline my RPi Farnell order

I'm a C/C++ software developer and have no time for home experiments, just wanted cheap bed-room HTPC.

I don't want to hack anything anymore.

Re: I'll probably decline my RPi Farnell order

I post this because there are many people intending to use RPi as HTPC.

My modest advice is: be patient and wait (if you can)

Re: New post on main page: manufacturing hiccup. Please keep comments about it in this thread!

How long would be this potential delay?

A week or month?

I ask about that because my estimated delivery date is 16.04, but my card will be expired on 30.04 and I'm starting to worry.

Re: Raspberry Pi begins deliveries May 15

Re: GPU utilization?

Hi there!

As I understood UIs (X server) are not yet accelerated with the GPU. So that means graphics will be sluggish. I feel a bit disappointed about that.

What about playing movies?
