You win best troll post of the month award

CHR1S (17th April 2012)
I made it too obvious didn't I?
Mine arrived today. Luckily my neighbour signed for it. The kids were encouragingly excited to open the package tonight. Will be installing Debian and taking it for a whirl tomorrow.
Here you go, pictures for your geeking pleasure!
Note that the Gamestation card is standard credit card sized to give you an idea of width and height, and the SD card to give you an idea of depth. Also, that SD sticks out a few centimetres when plugged in; worth noting if you plan to build your own case as I do!

Will deficiently get one of these when they are easier to come by and when someone has a stable XBMC O/S to run on it!!!
Not sure why everyone cares about xbmc on this. It will be horribly slow navigating as it cant hardware accelerate that.
Seems to run smoothly from this demo here.
XBMC running on Raspberry Pi | Raspberry Pi
Ideal for sticking in the bedroom or kitchen.

The other option is openELEC which is much lighter to start with, it's essentially an single purpose OS.
OpenELEC on RaspBerry Pi. Our first ARM device supported! | OpenELEC - The living room PC for everyone
Yep, I run Openelec on my Athlon x2 as a dualboot for Win7, as it's main "non-geek" task is DVD/FTA/WEBTV, since we binned our license and went TV free. Got the plugins for 4od and 5od too, although they're buggy at the mo. Lovely little setup, booting/running happily off an old 1gb USB stick. Lets hear it for all the programs I want to watch of a tech nature with none of the junk..heh..
Lunch time annoyance: forgot my work machines card reader can't handle SDHC
Oh well, plenty to do tonight - need photos for a competition, want to program my new Logitech Harmony 700 remote and of course get the R-Pi up and running, between that I also need to feed my family I suppose
See I'm glad I'm waiting, a lot of bugs should be worked out by the time I get one :-)
