Re: Game Console OS

<r>Quote from Jessie on November 4, 2011, 21:48<br/> This topic is one of my intended uses for the R-Pi when I get one. I figured some type of stripped down linux, and write some API libraries to make development of simple games easy. Start out with some simple tile based setups, and then develop mo...
