The RPi has a built-in troll detector. If it detects a troll it starts doing strange things.chuUK wrote: ↑Tue Sep 10, 2019 10:10 pmDon't do it. Don't buy. Unless you want to spend your days fixing a broken OS like it's 1999.
Gave my last remaning Pi4 to my daughter to play with and even after a reinstall of the OS it still super flaky. She hates it, too.
Had a good one yesterday: The mouse was working but not moving the cursor!? Imagine that in this day and age. I swear I can't remember such as poor computing experience since Win 95/98.
YouTube is a joke for the hardware available. Crashes, screen freezes, lag - oh my god - chromium lags like its running on 512K of memory. Scrolling is like treacle. But hey, their a charity so that's all right then isn't it. Kids learning and tinkers tinkering love it so that's good enough for them.
For desktop use, spend that £50 on an old PC and run Mint on it or get an x86-based SB that cost a few bob more but will be so much easy to use.
