Oh, what a bad surprise. I wouldn't believe it would be done like this - without any announcement or previous warning.

Matematica removed from raspbian image

The latest update or raspbian removed Mathematica. As it is quite heavy and many people don't use it I guess it is good choice. However the relase notes just has single line to say * Removed Mathematica without any explanation and people already start speculating https://www.phoronix.com/forums/foru...

Re: Pi 3B+ case with cooling fan

I think I will not turn on the fan permanently, but definitely I will in high CPU usage scenarios. The 3$ are well spent. With Pi3B+ thermal design it may also make sense to try aluminium case instead. There is one for ~7USD on ebay and I am quite happy with it. It can get slightly warm to the touc...

Trying to buy multiple Zero's at $5 by loopholes etc is abusing the charity aspect of it. Your choice, but the wrong one. As long as there is no other way to buy Zero without header for personal use in small quantities I can't agree with your point of view. There are many reasons why I disagree and...

To boot the Pi in Gadget mode, you don't insert the microSD card. There is no Linux running on the Pi.

Because you may want to remove Zero-as-usb-device from the PC and keep it working? I can't imagine a scenario where I would want that (but perhaps I just lack imagination). .... for me it's not worth the risk simply to avoid the slight inconvenience of shutting down and rebooting a Pi0.

Re: Using Both PWR and USB in OTG Mode on the Pi Zero

In such case it is better to cut the 5V wire of the usb cable so the 5V power is separated and does not flow from the PC to the Pi. This topic was discussed here https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 8&t=209895 together with other (mostly unrelated) issue.

Re: How to almost "shutdown" the Pi, only HDMI showing an image, to save battery

The only thing that the Pi does is, every two hours, do some computing, even networking, and automatically change the image displayed via HDMI. Then sleep for 2 hours. The image should keep displaying for these 2 hours. Sounds like Pi Zero W could handle this too? Zero has much lower power draw (li...
