Re: Rev2 boards are here!

Re new P5
"This GPIO allocation provides access to ONE of:
SDA0, SCL0 (Operating independently of P1 SDA1, SCL1); or
PCM_CLK, PCM_FS, PCM_DIN, PCM_DOUT or I2S; or
Four GPIO signals."

but could I get SDA0, SCL0 & two GPIO signals?

Where is P6 (the RESET connector?)

Re: RPi advertised by Maplin...

It was stated I believe that RS & Farnell would both get equal amounts of the production but that I think only applied to the initial 10,000 that the Foundation had ordered. People then assumed that that situation would continue. Since then it has been stated that each are arranging their own produc...

Android / Debian Pros & Cons

I'm a Linux newbie and don't expect to get into Linux at the compiling level (Like I suspect most Pi users will be!) What are the Pros & Cons between using Android & Debian on the Raspberry Pi?

Re: One per person limit lifted

4K a day = 20K a week = 1,040K a year or 520K in six months
But with just over half the year gone only about 200K shipped, therefore 200K+520K=720K this year.
They need to average over 30K a week to get to to 1Million this year.

Re: Adafruit's Raspberry Pi Case

No, though I think we'd love to accept them if bootc can apply them on 3.1.x and make a pull request.
If that happens, any chance DS1307/1338 Real Time Clock will also be included, please? I'm told drivers are in the standard sources.
