Re: Using a 2GB SD Card

The current image -- 2012-10-28 -- is 1.80 GB, even though the system reports back the root filesystem is smaller than it. There is about 350MB free (after extending the rootfs), which is enough for some documents, Scratch projects, etc. I have to keep an eye on temporary files, bookmarks/history/co...

Using a 2GB SD Card

Seems as if a lot of people on here are saying not to use a 2GB (1.8GB) SD card, because Raspbian will not fit. I am still waiting for my 16GB SD card, but I received the Pi earlier, and all I had was a 2GB SD Card. Eager to try my Raspberry Pi, I flashed the 2GB SD card with Raspbian, and it worked...

Re: Rant: Netbooks were better three years ago

Ah, this reminds me not only a couple of years ago when the very early EeePC was released. Came with a nice little Xandros system.
