That is the question! Whether it\'s better to not purchase the r-pi as soon as it\'s available and suffer the insults of my peers or to go ahead and purchase the pi and perhaps achieve my dreams with it? Ah that\'s the crux of the issue, what dreams may be achieved with the initial release of the r-pi?
Sorry, I find myself hilarious.
I do want to pose this question, however. There\'s been some overall mention regarding video playback and whatnot at the moment of the r-pi release\'s (mainly by the forum members so excessively that I can\'t find the official response from the r-pi team
). Now I don\'t really to discuss that can of worms in this thread, my real question is working on the *assumption* that we\'ll only have limited video playback with the initial release, when a version comes out that more fully takes advantage of the GPU, will we have to purchase a whole new board to take advantage of this, or will it be a matter of simply downloading an updated kernel and applying the update?
This will really affect whether my first board is the model A (and focuses more on the hardware side of things) or a model B (which may get limited use at first, but it will at least be in place and ready for my media center once a patch is released).
