Or wait until you actually have a Raspberry Pi so that you can take advantage of the 30 day money back guarantee.

Re: How do I run Debian for ARM in windows and compile code?

Maybe what you really need is a cross compiler. You can install x86 Linux in a virtual machine on your Windows PC and compile your code on there but targeting the ARM processor on the Pi. This will be much faster than running a compiler within an emulated environment.

Re: About power supply and peripherics

So does this mean that the RasPi's USB ports are limited to 100mA (one unit load) and a request to move to high-power mode and draw 500mA will be denied?

Re: Problems creating a SD card

When they get their RPi they want to be able to create the SD card, plug it in and turn on the RPi. It will boot into a GUI and they will easily be able to launch a browser etc. Having to boot...
